Rebels&Robots + Fleet St Present...
The Adventures of Suzy Boon

A 6-part Web Series Created by Roberto Nascimento
Written by Thomas Sainsbury and Louis Mendiola

The show follows the (mis)adventures of our hero, Suzy, who is half Maori/ half Chinese and is trying to find where she belongs in this world - and by world she means New Zealand. She is at the last week of her trial period at the Immigration Service of New Zealand and stakes are high - there's a lot to prove (mostly to her boss) if she wants to stay on the job. Thing is, Suzy has a lot on her mind right now. Love, happiness, her own identity; you know, the works.

Starring a brilliant ensemble cast, lead by KURA FORRESTER as Suzy Boon; Kura was last seeing on TV in The Blue Rose and Super City II; also starring Yvette Parsons (Agent Anna, Outrageous Fortune) , Liesha Ward Knox (Shortland St, This is not my Life), Scott Cotter (Shortland St), Thomas Sainsbury (SuperCity I & II), Genevieve Cohen (3 Mile Limit), Charles Chan (Ghost Bride), Mick Innes (Hounds, Sunny Skies, Shortland St), Roberto Nascimento (SuperCity) and Andrew Munro (Hounds, SuperCity).

Written By Thomas Sainsbury & Louis Mendiola.
