One of the projects the benefitted from NZ on Air’s emergency Covid funding is set to air on Prime this week.

The $700,000 Covid funding boost, funded projects that could be produced, quickly and safely during lockdown.

The result is INSiDE, a comedy-thriller based on the story of reclusive germaphobe Rose, who starts to unravel during the fictional second wave of Covid-19 in New Zealand - though the show was written, produced and filmed well before we did indeed have a second wave.

Actress Morgana O’Reilly, who plays Rose, and the show's director - and her husband – Peter Salmon joined Francesca Rudkin to discuss the project.
