Twins Kowhai and Monty Hook are the futuristic sound duo Hook Ups, trying to make it big in the cut-throat suburb of Aroha Bridge. Watch the ten 3min long animated comedy episodes written by Coco Solid and animated by SKYRANCH. All thanks to creative funding from New Zealand on Air.
Focusing on authentic, urban Māori characters with humour and style, this webseries follows Kowhai and Monty Hook as they navigate the complex but hilarious circumstances growing up in a bicultural, eclectic whanau. The extended Hook family are a micro society unto themselves - jock aunts, ex-All Black fathers, activist uncles and kooky cousins come together to create a multi-cultural medley that all young kiwi urbanites can relate to.
The series is voiced by a talented multi-racial and hilarious cast - Madeleine Sami, Frankie Stevens, Matai Smith, Scotty Cotter, Jessica Hansell, & Rizván Tu’itahi.
