Filmed in Central Otago, Under the Vines is heading back into production for its second season after gaining traction overseas. This charming drama-comedy was created by DEGANZ member Erin White. Guild member Danny Mulheron directed the first block, while Erin directed episodes four to six.
Starring Rebecca Gibney (Wanted) and Charles Edwards (The Crown), the series follows two city dwellers as they navigate rural New Zealand after inheriting an Otago vineyard. But neither knows a thing about hard work, only their dislike for the other.
Co-produced by TVNZ and AMC’s (US) streaming platform, Acorn, Under the Vines has gained popularity internationally. The six-part first series was filmed in the beautiful vineyards around Gibbston Valley. All episodes are now available on TVNZ OnDemand.
Congratulations to Erin and Danny, and good luck to everyone working on season 2.
