Rupture Selects DEGANZ Members Currie and Tuiburelevu

Max Currie (DEGANZ) will take part in Rupture, a new development programme for series writers. Additionally, fellow member Litia Tuiburelevu joins writer Coco Solid’s team as a collaborator.

The pilot programme aims to bring together powerful storytellers to shake up and deepen episodic series development in Aotearoa. Over six months, Rupture will provide the teams with resources and support to come together, experiment, and explore pathways to market. The participants will take their practice to the next level through intensive story labs, ongoing support from local and international practitioners, and development funding for their series projects.

To select the writer-creator participants, Rupture sought nominations from screen industry partners before inviting expressions of interest from applicants. A rigorous selection process followed to ensure those selected were experienced enough for the intensive.

Congratulations and all the best to Max and Litia with the programme!
