Educators is a new, local, unscripted comedy, set behind-the-scenes of an ordinary Kiwi secondary school, and following the people in charge of educating the next generation.
Devised by Jesse Griffin, Jonny Brugh and Jackie van Beek (The Breaker Upperers), these teachers are bumbling along just as much as the kids they teach. They’re a bunch of dysfunctional educators just trying to survive the day until the bell rings.
Starring Jonny Brugh (What We Do In The Shadows), Cohen Holloway (Fresh Eggs), Kura Forrester (The Adventures of Suzy Boon), Rick Donald (800 Words) and Tom Sainsbury (Wellington Paranormal), this laugh-out-loud comedy will be your new favourite.
The Twilight Zone

And, just like the classic show, the new series will feature a standalone story each week that explores different characters and themes - all of them within the horrifying boundaries of The Twilight Zone.
