Wellington Paranormal

Television, 2018–2022

This hit TV series was spawned from big screen mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows (2014). After stumbling over a Wellington flat inhabited by vampires in the original movie, dim-witted cops Minogue (Mike Minogue) and O'Leary (Karen O'Leary) are enlisted by a paranormal obsessed sergeant (Maaka Pohatu) to investigate unusual events — from cows up trees, to werewolves, ghosts and zombie cops. They are assisted by the bumbling Constable Parker (Thomas Sainsbury). Six episodes debuted on TVNZ 2 in 2018; four were directed by the show's co-creator, Jemaine Clement. The fourth and final season screened in 2022.
