Three series of 10 x 24 mins
The first series produced by Homegrown TV was the eponymously named magazine format series Homegrown which played on TVNZ 2002 – 2004 inclusive.
With ten half hours per year 2002 – 2005, and a ‘best of’ summer series of recuts at end of series 2 and 3, it was the first toe in the water of production.
Covering newborn to teen, the series covered a potpourri of parenting pertinent content. From family friendly food and good books and websites, to dealing with the challenges and issues of the age, as well as a window into a celebrity family’s life with kids.
Jude Dobson as producer found all the production funding for this series from the market. It was sold to China and played on China Green Channel International.
