Nine to launch reality show about parking rangers

The TV networks have launched factual reality shows about everything from lifesavers, to the police, police dogs, vets, and now the Nine Network is developing a reality show about parking officers.  

Produced by Cornerbox Productions, councils across the country have been approached to participate in the show.

It will follow the parking officers and council rangers in their day-to-day jobs which include issuing traffic fines and policing littering.

Cornerbox EP, Michael Horrocks, said: “It’s a very human look at the rangers – what they do and what they go through.”

A Herald report today said the Nine show would be called The Enforcers, but it is understood that it is one of many working titles being considered at this stage.

It is also believed that the Seven Network is considering a similar format.

In the UK, a similar program called The Clampers launched on the BBC several years ago. A traffic warden called Ray Brown gained notoriety while featuring in the fly-on-the wall series. He then went onto host of a gay blind dating show.

Seven’s factual reality shows – or what the TV networks call factual observational documentaries – including Border Security: Australia’s Frontline, Dog Squad, RSPCA: Animal Rescue, The Zoo and Surf Patrol.

Nine has Customs and the UK’s Send in the Dogs. Ten meanwhile has just finished a season of Bondi Rescue.

Seven was not available at the time this article was posted.
