Panel of no-nonsense aunties of Maoridom

Ask Your Auntie

607 episodes x 30 minutes | Maori TV

A panel show starring a revolving panel of some of the wisest, straight-from-the-shoulder, no-nonsense aunties Maoridom has to offer – offering straight-up advice in response to viewers’ personal-problem letters.

After a search for the country’s outstanding aunties, Ask Your Auntie features a five-woman line-up – a regular frontwoman to present and read the letters, plus four panelists, who revolved from a line-up of around 14 chosen aunties.

They replied to four or five problems letters per show, with each panelist taking turns to lead off, answering – in a mix of English and Te Reo – with a personal response she’s had time to consider for a few days before the show.

There is a wealth of auntie talent out there – from wise old aunties to famous aunties to young and cheeky ones – and the panel reflects a good cross-section of style, age, humour and attitude.  Four series of Ask Your Auntie produced by Greenstone.
