B-Rabbit - New Beginnings. Old Problems. The First TV Pilot written, filmed, and edited in Nelson, New Zealand. Loosely based on true experiences of the creator Laura Irish and her offbeat family, B-Rabbit is a hilarious, invasive depiction of the peaks and valleys of immigrating to New Zealand and the life you desperately tried to leave behind.

When Laura immigrates to Nelson, New Zealand as a young mum, she's relieved to leave her American life behind to start a new adventure and identity. Her new life is shaken when her extremely uncouth, impulsive brother, Bradley, self-nicknamed B-Rabbit, unexpectedly arrives in New Zealand and Laura has no choice but to try to integrate him successfully into New Zealand culture with the help and hinderance of those around her.

Overtime, the relationships and shenanigans of the four main characters bring them together into a group of multi-cultural unlikely anti-heroes who team up against various local foes.

B-Rabbit is the dramatisation of Laura Irish's relationship with her family viewed through the prism of her move to New Zealand and her current life in Nelson. B-Rabbit is developed, written, directed and produced by a team of Nelsonian professional comedy improvisers including Laura Irish, Michael O'Malley, Doug Brooks, Steve Wilson, Daniel Allan, and award winning journalist, Charles Anderson.
