He meets seven of these so called “Short Poppies”, a diverse group of unique individuals all played by comedy tour de force, Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Yes Man).

Meet part time leg model and lifeguard Terry Pole, park ranger Bill Napier, senior citizen Mary Ledbetter as she wrestles with town issues and criticisms, artist and beauty Louise Cooper, UFOlogist Steve Whittle, and local lawyer Rhod Gainer.

“Sweet and absurd” LA Times

“This is addictive, laugh-out-loud and imaginative stuff, with Darby showing his great skill for creating characters. Absolutely hysterical in every episode, well made and utterly inspired, the show proves that in an age of cruel schadenfreude, kind humour can still entertain. 10/10” Vodzilla ow we get the chance to see Rhys lovingly play homage to one of his comic heroes and this comedic genre.
