Tired of your relationship? Things just not working out? Don’t want to have to tell your partner that it’s not you, it’s them? Then it’s time to enlist the services of Jen and Mel, The Breaker Upper.
Presented by Taika Waititi (Boy, The Hunt for The Wilderpeople) and starring Jackie van Beek, Madeleine Sami, James Rolleston and Celia Pacquola, The Breaker Upperers is the latest in the Kiwi comedy wave, and it's an absolute hoot.
Fifteen years ago, Mel (Madeleine Sami) and Jen (Jackie van Beek) discovered they were being two-timed by the same man. Bitter and cynical they became fast friends and formed The Breaker Upperers, a small-time business breaking up couples for cash. Now they’re in their late-thirties and business is booming. They’re a platonic, codependent couple who keep their cynicism alive by not getting emotionally involved with anybody else. But when they run into an old victim, Mel develops a conscience and their friendship is truly put to the test.
Season starts from July 26 at Luna Leederville + Luna on SX
