Channel Nine has a new factual in development starring parking officers and council rangers called The Enforcers.
Until now their daily duties have been the fodder of current affairs shows: policing traffic infringements, stray dogs, residents having an illicit cigarette in non-smoking areas and illegal rubbish dumping….
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the Seven Network is developing a similar concept.
Nine’s show is expected to ‘humanise’ the work of its subjects, who will be followed by a small crew as they go about their duties.
Sutherland Council in Sydney is considering participating in the show -the same council that ripped up the work of TEN’s Guerilla Gardeners earlier last year.
Waverley Council declined to participate while Warringah Council has signed up to the show. Interstate councils are also being approached.
Nine’s show is being produced by Cornerbox Productions, which produced Surf Patrol, The Wedge, Mark Loves Sharon, With Friends Like These, and The Lost Tribes.
