Ashton Kutcher sells DMV reality show
At last: The Department of Motor Vehicles is getting its own reality show.
TruTV has ordered a new series from executive producers Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg that goes behind-the-scenes at a California DMV office.
“We’ve all spent time at the DMV, but few people know what it’s like to work for the DMV,” said Goldberg, who’s co-founder and CEO of Katalyst Films (Punk’d, Beauty and the Geek). “California DMV: Field Offices promise to be a glimpse at what DMV workers experience, from strange to hilarious.”
The DMV is infamous for its long waits and is one of the few places in California where the crowd is always a truly socially and economically diverse cross section — after all, sooner or later, everybody must go to the DMV.
“With California DMV: Field Offices, truTV is ready to jump behind the counter and see what really happens,” said Marc Juris, executive vp and general manager of truTV. “This promises to be a fast-paced, fun series, and we’re excited to be working with Katalyst for the first time.”
The series will shoot on location in several DMV offices. No premiere date is set, but the network has made a four-episode commitment.
