Get your Seinfeld fix, this week with TVNZ!
Stream from Friday 22 November, 12pm on TVNZ OnDemand
We're taking you right back to the very beginning...when Jerry Seinfeld was a single man, living in New York City.
Join four friends - Jerry the comic, his best mate, bungling George Costanza, their frustrated working gal-pal Elaine and (not forgetting) Jerry's eccentric neighbour Cosmo Kramer, as they deal with the absurdities of everyday life in the Big Apple.
With every season available, it's one hilarious trip back to the 90s!
Premieres Thursday 21 November, 12pm on TVNZ OnDemand
Hosted by Kristin Cavallari (The Hills), Paradise Hotel follows a group of singles who are given the opportunity of a lifetime – to check in to an exclusive tropical resort, and check out with big money.
Immersed in a gorgeous setting, these strangers will be surrounded by sun, fun and romance – all cloaked in a wild competition. This paradise won’t last forever...it will take strategy to remain there.
Each week, these singles will vote off one of their fellow residents to make room for a new guest. Viewers in the US can play along at home, using social media to try and influence what happens on screen, including helping to decide who stays and who goes.
