Shortland Street
New Zealand's longest running serial drama

A fast-paced serial drama in an urban setting, Shortland Street explores the lives and loves of the patients and staff of a modern metropolitan hospital and contains a heady mix of medical crisis, human drama, comedy, romance and suspense. First airing in 1992, Shortland Street celebrated it's 25th Anniversary in May 2017. With around 40% of all viewers tuning in every night, Shortland Street is regularly the number one show in target demographics 18-39 and Household Shoppers with children. As well as being New Zealand's most successful serial drama, the show screens in several international territories including Fiji, Australia and Ireland.

Press Reviews

  • For better or worse, Shortland Street does that kind of thing all the time. If it's not dishing up zeitgeist-defining insta-classics like the Warner Family Penis Panic of 2017 say, or poor Dawn's spewy proposal response and poor Drew's Poo-nami nightmare, it's tackling deeply disturbing issues like rape, suicide, violent crime and domestic violence head on, without hesitation or fear. Kylie Klein Nixon

  • Each episode lasted only a few minutes, but the content they packed into those precious seconds was incredible. Tara Ward
