He conceived and wrote two series of the TVNZ 1 arts programme Mercury Lane, wrote and produced documentaries including A Flock of Students (DNZ) and History Man (a TVNZ Festival NZ documentary on writer Michael King). He conceived Ask Your Auntie, the hit five-nights-a-week advice show which played for three seasons on Maori Television. He has also written scripts for many TV documentaries and series, including nine seasons of popular TVNZ series The Zoo. Colin Hogg's latest book is The High Road, which sees him and faithful sidekick Bruce hit the high road in America on an exploration of a wild new world, where cannabis is free and easy.
