In this new factual reality *cough* *cough* show, go behind the scenes of New Zealand's first Paranormal Unit. As we all know, Wellington is a hotbed of supernatural activity... so Officers Minogue and O'Leary, who featured in the vampire documentary What We Do In The Shadows, take to the streets to investigate all manner of paranormal phenomena.

Wellington Paranormal is executive produced by Taika Waititi (Hunt For The Wilderpeople, Thor: Ragnorok) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of The Conchords), two locals who have an interest in exposing what is really going on in the streets of Wellington.  

In episode one of the series, Wellington's Paranormal Unit, fresh off a successful retrieval of 5 pairs of stolen trousers that were taken from Blackfield Menswear, officers are tasked with bringing in Bazu’aal - a body-hopping demon. His name, which translates to 'He who brings hell on earth'. 

As soon as Taika took to Twitter last week to let the Kiwis know that Wellington Paranormal was starting soon, like demons to a Hellmouth, Twitter pounced on the news.

Naturally, people got excited.

The news of the show had everyone psyched, but then, typically, the Aussies made it all about them.

It's alright - we have news:

Wellington Paranormal is coming to SBS VICELAND from Tuesday 31 July with a double episode, with episodes out every week after that. Episodes will also be streaming at SBS On Demand each week, with the full season available from 28 August.
