TVNZ OnDemand will host Chaz Harris’ webseries End of Term once the final episode releases on 13 December.
After its world premiere at the inaugural NZ Web Fest in early November, End of Term has been releasing episodes twice a week.
The series, about High School teens caught up in a viral outbreak, stars Thomasin McKenzie (Consent: The Louise Nicholas Story, Shortland Street), Jayden Daniels (Shortland Street) and a young ensemble cast. Shot in Wellington in October, the series was independently funded and received support from Avalon Studios and Scots College.
Creator Chaz Harris said, “These are brief found-footage glimpses of a much bigger story universe that includes a six-part miniseries and feature film we’ve developed. We’re thrilled to have the support of TVNZ OnDemand in bringing this story to a wider New Zealand audience.”
The TVNZ OnDemand release will follow a series finale premiere screening on Sunday 13 December at The Roxy Cinema in Wellington. All 12 episodes of End of Term will then be available on TVNZ OnDemand from 14 December.
On the TVNZ platform End of Term will join a growing crop of local web series, which includes KHF Media’s Emmy winning Reservoir Hill and more recent titles Capital Culture and NZ Idle.
