Flight of the Conchords Details

The wonderfully quirky Flight of the Conchords is a comedy on HBO that follows a fictionalized version of the real life folk duo band, Flight of the Conchords.  In the fictionalized version, Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie play fictionalized versions of themselves.

Jermaine and Bret move from New Zealand to try to make it as a band in New York City.  They hire Murray (Rhys Darby) as their incompetent, but lovable manager, whose full time job is at the New Zeland consulate.  They have one fan, Mel (Kristen Schaal) who's unbelievably obsessed with them and one friend, Dave (Arj Barker).

Jemaine: Yes, well, thanks for that.

Bret: Rumours
Murray: No. No, it's all true
