This awesome new show is packed with stuff you love and we know you want heaps of music, so we’ve got your ear candy sorted! Not only is there a hot, young resident houseband to rock out to but Erin gets the party started with a surprise music video that’s also the show’s theme tune! She’ll join forces with famous NZ band Good Night Nurse to write this catchy hit tune which you’ll be humming all day!
Using the coolest technology from iPods to iPhones and Macs, Erin will be getting all the best bits from surfing the net, downloading tunes and videos, chatting to stars, competitions, free stuff and sweet as prizes!
Fed up of boring TV that tells you what to do? Who cares? Well we do! We want you to tell us what you want and how you want it, so there’ll be heaps of ways to connect, send in your ideas and talk.
Every week Erin will hook up with a team of reporters who are her eyes and ears across the country. These up and coming New Zealanders are really passionate about their jobs and know exactly what’s hot. Fashion is looked after by Katy Thomas; music maven Ruby Frost keeps us posted on the latest music and dance; up-and-coming Crusader Isaac Ross is all things sports; gaming and technology is covered by our favourite funny man Chang from The Edge; and Kimberley Crossman of Shortland St fame reviews all of the latest TV and movies. You’re guaranteed an exclusive front row seat to the biggest events and happenings!
Even Erin’s best mates get in on the act, bringing their own brand of mischief to the show. These two cheeky boys are naughty, full of surprises and love a bit of chaos. Anything can happen when these guys are around cos playing tricks and pranks is their thing. So be warned cos the boys will be roaming the streets of your town looking for unsuspecting members of the public!
Speaking about the new series, Producer Emma Gribble says: “This is a first for Whitebait TV and New Zealand, a totally new magazine format that caters for a cool but demanding audience that will pose some exciting editorial challenges for us.”
“We hope to deliver a series that, besides news, laughs and tasty clips, will have a modern feel, and will really connect with things that make teenagers tick, without being condescending.”
The Erin Simpson Show will broadcast from Monday, April 27th 2009 on TV2 at 4:30 pm.
