From Great Encounters

Jemaine Clement
Jemaine Clement talks about the new TV show 'Wellington Paranormal' a mock police reality show that he and collaborator Taika Waititi co-wrote. It’s a spinoff to their 2014 mockumentary horror film 'What We Do in The Shadows'. 'Wellington Paranormal' follows the two cops from Shadows – Minogue and O'Leary – who are investigating paranormal phenomena in the capital.  Jemaine tells Kim he first met Karen O'Leary (who plays O'Leary) when she was a teacher at their casting agent's son's kindy. She'd become kindergarten-famous for her dead-pan speeding arrests of little kids on scooters.
