Officers Minogue and O'Leary first came to the world's attention in the documentary feature film What We Do in the Shadows created by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement. This led to them getting their own hit television series Wellington Paranormal, a cross between Police 10/7 and The Office, which screened in New Zealand and Australia to critical and audience acclaim in 2018. With Season 2 about to commence shooting we can expect to see these two fine Officers on our screens for a long time to come.
Minogue and O’Leary take these matters very, very seriously but for some reason audiences find them hilarious. It’s very strange. But mostly funny.
