The Pretender: Series 1, Episodes 1-5

'The Pretender' is a smart, satirical and biting examination of our nation's leaders; the people behind them; and the jealousy, megalomania, fear, confusion, desperation, and occasional (generally brief) elation that mark another typical day at the office. Filmed in a 'mockumentary' style, we follow National Party candidate and budding politician Dennis Plant as he claims the seat for Wakatipu South and quickly becomes the voice of a piece of New Zealand we always knew existed but have never actually seen in person...
