Project Description

For the first time on New Zealand television we dive deep into the incredible life story of our nation’s greatest sporting legend – the man who touched the lives and hearts of people worldwide.

The sporting legend Jonah Lomu is a cultural icon, traversing generations. He’s New Zealand’s star, the people’s rugby player. The first Tongan All Black and the youngest ever All Black to play an international. Lomu quickly found his way in to the nation’s heart – and soon after, the world’s heart.

But behind the success Jonah was juggling the demands of his personal life, his international rugby career and a devastating illness.

This two-part mini-series is a fresh and confronting story brought to you by the team who made The Kick.
