Watch – September/October

A  mystery thriller, a dark comedy from Netflix and an international reality show coming to New Zealand; September and October are looking to heat up our screens both big and small.


Based on the novel of the same name, A Simple Favour sees mummy blogger, Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) search for answers after her wealthy best friend, Emily (Blake Lively) disappears. With a plot involving murder, suspicion and a few twists along the way, this mystery-thriller is just the ticket for those with a penchant for crime-solving.


Starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, musical romantic drama, A Star is Born is the remake of the 1937 film of the same name. Sam (Cooper) is a heavy-drinking country musician who falls in love with struggling artist, Ally (Lady Gaga) and encourages her to follow her dreams. As Ally’s success grows, their relationship begins to fail and sees Sam battling with his own issues.

In cinemas October 4


Another international reality show has been given a New Zealand makeover, except this time, it won’t involve blind marriages or a bunch of singles on an island getaway. With Kiwi model superstar Georgia Fowler taking on the Heidi Klum hosting role, those with fashion design aspirations will compete against each other to prove they have the creative finesse to succeed in the industry. Designers will be mentored by AUT Fashion lecturer, Andreas Mikellis while being judged by World Director and Designer Benny Castles and FQ Editor Sally Muggins.

Tune in to TVNZ 2 on Sundays from October to stay up to date with who’s in and who’s out.
