New romantic comedy for Rebecca Gibney

Rebecca Gibney is star & exec. producer of a series based on inheriting a vineyard.

Filming has wrapped in Alexandra, New Zealand, on a new romantic comedy Under the Vines with Rebecca Gibney as star and executive producer.

The series, which sees two ‘cityslickers’ inherit a Kiwi vineyard, the only problems are that neither of them has ever done a hard days’ work- and they despise one another.

“When this show was first brought to me, it was actually written for Australia and I said, ‘Is there any way we can shoot it in New Zealand?’” Gibney told TVNZ.

Created by Erin White (At Home with Julia, Squinters, Sando, Doctor Doctor) the series also features Robbie Magasiva, Jon Bach, Sarah Pierse and Sara Wiseman.

An Australian broadcaster is yet to be announced.

Filming has also wrapped on a second season of crime drama One Lane Bridge.

Season One, starring Joel Toebeck (Tangle, Doctor Blake Mysteries) and Dominic Ona-Ariki, screened on 7TWO in December.

The show follows a South Auckland cop (Ona-Ariki), who is called down to Queenstown to help solve a murder – while also being haunted by images of the dead.
