The series focuses on Kiwi-bloke Darryl, played by creator Millen Baird, who is a marathon runner but keeps collapsing mid race from dehydration. 

"He's effectively a running joke and an internet sensation for all the wrong reasons," Baird said. 

The series follows him to Outward Bound, with the story inspired by Baird's real experiences on the educational course. 

It features well-known New Zealanders like Shavaughn Ruakere and Fasitua Amosa, as well as Radio Hauraki duo Leigh Hart and Jason Hoyte.
