NZ On Air invests in public media for many audiences. We find and support great audio and visual content that holds a mirror up to New Zealand and our people. We do this through the platform-neutral NZ Media Fund which has four streams.
We will invest around $40m in the 2017/18 year in scripted content. This includes audio/visual drama, comedy, animation or any other content that requires a planned creative approach.
Two new co-productions between New Zealand and Canadian producers will create interactive documentaries with historic ties to both countries.
NZ On Air will adopt a new single strategy and single media fund from July 1 2017, after receiving overwhelming support for the new approach from stakeholders.
A new children’s drama series, a family feature film, and a returning favourite series are set to bring more diverse stories to local TV screens.
