In preparation for her upcoming role in a police procedural as the department’s resident computer and tech genius, local actress Alison Flynn purchased a pair of rimmed glasses to push up her nose, to signify to the audience that she ‘knows her computers and techy stuff’.
“To prepare for this role, I did a lot of research into computers and IT stuff. I changed my desktop background a few times and downloaded iTunes, so things are definitely going well!”
“I’m pretty sure that my training combined with my wardrobe will have everyone convinced that I know how computers work!”
“I’ll look like any other member of an IT Department!”
Flynn said she had also been practising her hacking skills.
“I’ve mastered the perfect way of saying “I’m in” once I’ve cracked the terrorist’s mainframe.”
“I am so good at computers!”
The new show, tentatively titled ‘Cop Squad’, has announced a series of other additions to the cast list, including a bland and generic white man to play the lead, a wise-cracking Māori guy as his partner, and an impossibly beautiful young woman as the love interest, specifically to further contribute to the body issues of thousands of young women around the country.
Rounding off the cast is an old white actor who’s from that movie you saw several years ago to play the role of the commissioner who slams his fist on the desk and demand the return of “your badge and gun, dammit”.
The show has already been greenlit for three seasons.
