Move into the slow lane, "Ice Road Truckers." Head for shore, "Deadliest Catch." The California Department of Motor Vehicles is getting its own reality TV show.
Entertainment Weekly has reported that TruTV has ordered up four episodes of "California DMV: Field Offices." The show, co-produced by actor Ashton Kutcher and veteran reality TV exec Jason Goldberg, will look at what it's like to work at one of the few state departments that touches nearly every Californian.
When The State Worker heard about the show, we thought we were being "Punk'd" (one of Goldberg's shows on MTV), so we double checked with DMV spokesman Mike Marando.
"It's true," Marando said. "We've been working toward this for a while."
Last year the National Geographic channel hit pay dirt with "Wild Justice," a reality show that followed California game wardens. That show's debut reached about 2 million viewers.
The DMV show will shoot from several offices, EW reports. There's no premier broadcast date yet.
