Watch: TVNZ2's star-studded new black comedy Fresh Eggs set to hit Kiwi screens

The trailer for TVNZ2's brand new series Fresh Eggs has been released showcasing the all-star cast who appear in the black comedy.

Claire Chitham, Cohen Holloway, Danielle Cormack, John Rhys-Davies and Dave Fane feature in the six-part series that follows a couple’s quest for "the good life" that goes wickedly awry.

Penny (Chitham, Shortland Street, Outrageous Fortune) and Wade (Holloway, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Eagle vs Shark) crave a peaceful, picture-perfect existence.

But when they make the move to the small town of Alberton they find themselves in the middle of something odd and slightly sinister.

After a fatal accident, Penny and Wade find themselves face-to-face with some very bad eggs, who threaten not only their happiness, but their lives.

Award-winning actress Danielle Cormack (Wentworth) stars as Lulu, an overstretched modern mother and career criminal who’s married to Pig (Dave Fane, Sione’s Wedding), a criminal psychopath.

Acclaimed actor John Rhys Davies (The Lord of the Rings) plays Penny’s boss, Cutter, a narcissistic crime author who finds himself at the centre of a real murder mystery.

Fresh Eggs is co-created and co-written by Nick Ward (Stickmen, Second-Hand Wedding) and Kim Harrop (Shortland Street, The Coffin Club) and produced by Warner Bros. International Television Production New Zealand.

Fresh Eggs is funded by NZ On Air and debuts in February.
