Brown Eye is a satire semi-topical news show that is unadulterated, opinionated and most importantly entertaining. It is a studio based programme that will deliver a mixture of clever monologue, intelligent interviews and lead insightful panel discussions on the biggest topics impacting all of New Zealand.
Produced by Taika Waititi (who also appears in the show) and Bailey Mackey – an award-winning duo who between them have amassed an amazing track record of communicating Māori content to large broad audiences.
“What will set us apart will be heart. We've got a really varied range of people throwing their brain power at this show, but each of us come with heart. We'll have panel discussions, I saw Mike King hanging around in the kitchen yesterday and we told him we'd make him a coffee if he agreed to come on the show, so he said yes. He loves coffee. When you've got someone as talented as Taika Waititi to teach you history lessons then you know we're going to educate. Our audience will finish the year as the smartest audience in world TV history probably.”
