The newest local scripted comedy on television comes to us from the production team behind 7 Days.
Coverband takes us into the world of rock 'n roll with 'The Silhouettes' struggling to hang on to the bottom rung of the musical ladder. This is where faded ambitions stalk the modestly talented.
Coverband's cast includes Johnny Barker (Auckland Daze, Go Girls) as the band leader; Matt Whelan (Go Girls, 3 Mile Limit) plays bass - he taught himself to play bass for the series; Wesley Dowdell (Outrageous Fortune, momentarily in The World's Fastest Indian) is the loveable drummer; and Laughton Kora (of the real life and successful band Kora) is rockin' the mike.
Coverband is made by The DownLow Concept for TVNZ 1
