March 24, 2021 (Burbank, CA) ─ The CW Network announced today the acquisition of WELLINGTON PARANORMAL in partnership with HBOMax. A spinoff of the vampire mockumentary film “What We Do In The Shadows,” from award-winning creators Jemaine Clement (“Flight of the Conchords”) and Taika Waititi (“Jojo Rabbit”), the New Zealand based WELLINGTON PARANORMAL will make its U.S. broadcast debut on The CW. The horror-comedy series is slated for the network’s summer schedule. Dates and times to be announced at a later time.

 

WELLINGTON PARANORMAL marks the first co-acquisition of a primetime series between The CW Network and HBOMax. Every episode of the supernatural comedy series will first air on The CW and will be available to stream on the network’s free, ad-supported digital platforms (The CW app and CWTV.com) and WarnerMedia’s subscription-based platform, HBOMax, the day following its broadcast, throughout the season.

 

WELLINGTON PARANORMAL follows the adventures of Officers O’Leary (Karen O’Leary, “What We Do In The Shadows”) and Minogue (Mike Minogue, “What We Do In The Shadows”), hard-working members of the Wellington constabulary’s paranormal unit who, under the supervision of Sergeant Maaka (Maaka Pohatu, “Savage”), investigate supernatural occurrences that arise in the capital of New Zealand on a surprisingly regular basis.

 

Created by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, who serve as executive producers of the series with Paul Yates, WELLINGTON PARANORMAL is produced by The New Zealand Documentary Board.
