You Say New Zealand, I Say Australia

Australia’s Channel Nine is planning to count a New Zealand-produced drama as part of its Australian content quote. Aussie screenwriters are protesting. “After the High Court case the television stations had a tacit agreement that they wouldn’t go with New Zealand drama product. Something has changed. This is a fight for us: if one network gets away with it, what are the others going to do? We will be in the streets in February and March.”
