Pot Luck started out as an idea in the head of Writer/Director Ness Simons, and grew into a six-part original webseries grounded in the friendship of a group of Wellington lesbians. Telling stories for a community who hardly ever get to see themselves on screen is something Ness is really passionate about, and this naturalistic comedy offers a taste of local life in three great flavours.
DEBS is a shy butch with a heart of gold who's been keeping things strictly platonic since her heart was broken six years ago. A security guard and avid comic fan, the weekly dinners with her two best mates are the highlight of her social life. Debs discovers whether she's ready to get back out there...
MEL is Debs best mate, and a bit of a player. A bar-owner and lover of the good life, Mel can be a little careless with her friends sometimes. Mel starts to question her life choices, and her relationship with Beth.
BETH is Mel's ex-girlfriend, and the most responsible person in the group. A lesbrarian and carer for her mother Eileen, Beth's story sees her explore whether there's more to life than always doing the right thing.
When a pact is thrown down in season one these three women turn their weekly pot luck dinners into a standing date, with a range of different women appearing along the way. Season two sees them heading down different paths as they try to keep their friendship, and relationships, on track. Fun, sexy, and occasionally ridiculous... look out world New Zealand's first lesbian web series is here!
