Wellington Paranormal

Television, 2018–2021

This hit TV series was spawned from big screen mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows (2014). After stumbling over 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 and zombie cops. Six episodes debuted on TVNZ 2 in 2018; four were directed by co-creator Jemaine Clement. A third season screened in 2021, with a fourth on the way.
