A great show but $400,000 an episode?

Stuff reports:

It seems 13 is a lucky number for the team behind TVNZ 2’s hit show Wellington Paranormal.

New Zealand on Air has announced there will be a second season of the capital-set show, which investigates supernatural goings-on.

$5.09 million will be pumped into the next season of the acclaimed mockumentary comedy horror series.

I watched every episode of Season 1 and loved it. Is so very Kiwi, and is a great mocking of Police reality shows and Kiwi culture.

But despite being a huge fan, I have to say that $5 million for 13 episodes seems excessive.  That $17,035 per minute of screen time

For comparison Mystic got $1,000,000 for 13 episodes that are five minutes longer. That’s $2,750 per minute of screen time.

Looks like someone will get very wealthy from this.
