The kiwi supernatural mockumentary series, 'Wellington Paranormal', is coming to the UK and will be available to British viewers on Sky Comedy and Now TV next month.

All 19 episodes of the comedy will be available to watch as a three-season boxset from Monday, April 5, including the most recent third series which is still premiering in New Zealand.

The comedy show, which first aired in New Zealand in 2018, primarily revolves around the working lives of two police officers, Minogue and O'Leary, working at the Wellington Police department who are dealing with a rise in cases that their sergeant, Ruawai Maaka, is marking as "paranormal".

'Wellington Paranormal' is a spinoff to the vampire comedy 'What We Do In The Shadows' and follows the same cinematic documentary style, created by Grammy and Emmy award-winning Jemaine Clement and Oscar-winning Taika Waititi.

The comedy is delivered in the style of a police reality show, and follows the kiwi cops as they investigate cases such as a young woman possessed by the demon Bazu'aal, an entity who can jump from body to body and who is literally hell-bent on opening a portal to Hades in Cuba Street's iconic Bucket Fountain.

Minogue and O'Leary also tackle a noise complaint at a haunted house full of ghosts from the 1970s, a coven of threatening teen witches, not to mention the haunting of the '85 Nissan 300 Zx.

The two lead characters are played by Mike Minogue and Karen O'Leary, who ended up playing characters who share their surnames because Jemaine Clement asked Karen on set what her character should be called and decided that her real surname sounded like a real cop's name, so they decided to use it and apply the rule to Mike's character too.

Throughout the three series, the hapless duo investigate an alien invasion on a farm, meet a werewolf out for revenge on her ex, and encounter the vampire Nick from 'What We Do In The Shadows' stealing blood from the hospital.

Their investigations also involve a ghost behind a dairy, a scary ritual in a park, some creepy clowns by the road, and a couple of dreary goths in a cemetery. The first series builds to the duo's biggest case to date as they battle to prevent a zombie apocalypse that started with a pair of zombified cops from their own station.

'Wellington Paranormal' will be available on Sky Comedy and Now TV from 5 April.
