Rhys Darby's new television series will screen on America's Netflix this April. Short Poppies is a comedy written by and starring Darby. The show follows journalist David Farrier as he meets "not so ordinary" characters in a small New Zealand town, who are all played by Darby. Filmed in New Zealand, the mockumentary-style show also features appearances by the likes of The Office writer Stephen Merchant. Courtesy Netflix/YouTube.
