Called VOOF: Voices of Our Future the 12 part series features rangatahi trying to make it in the commercial and sometimes cut throat music Industry.

Among the whetu of the series is the singing sensation Maimoa the group that knocked Justin Bieber off the iTunes music charts last year with their te reo waiata Maimoatia.

Roopu member and reality tv star Nathaniel Howe says the cast of VOOF was holed up in a house and filmed over three weeks.

He says they were mindful of the risk they were taking in being exposed to viewers 24/7.

"Man that was pretty crazy, having a camera follow everything that you do. But we're cautious we still think about our whanau we still think about our kura, we want to leave a good impression. We didn't want to be like Geordie Shore and be crazy and stuff like that we want to be good role models for our tamariki", says Nathaniel Howe.

The series screens next week on Maori TV.

The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology
The fundamental problem with Oranga Tamariki's uplift apology is that it's not really an apology at all because they still believe they had every right to take the infant and are apologising for the lack of communication.

Nothing highlights the denial of colonialism quite like the Parihaka apology
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: We must never allow the perfect to defeat the good, but the fact that it's taken 138 years to formally apologise for the tragedy of Parihaka speaks volumes about the cultural denial of the negative effects of colonialism.
