New York, New York, December 10, 2007 � They tuck tickets under our windshields and clamp yellow boots to our car wheels. They are called every name in the book. Some try to run from them. Others try to run them over. They are the people we love to hate, but never before have they been so fascinating. A&E's new real-life series PARKING WARS, premiering Tuesday, January 8 at 10:00pm ET/PT, is a behind the scenes ride with the men and women of the Philadelphia Parking Authority as they manage the chaos that is every driver's greatest nightmare.... parking!
The car is an integral part of the American dream. It is one of the most tangible expressions of one's freedom and identity. When taken away, the response is often not pretty. PARKING WARS is a first-hand and decidedly playful look at what happens when the citizens of Philadelphia comes face-to-face with the PPA.
Intense, humorous and always emotional, PARKING WARS is an exclusive look at the people behind the stereotypes. From ticketers to tow truck drivers, the PPA crews are fearless and funny as they get the job done.
Robert Sharenow and Laura Fleury are the executive producers for A&E. PARKING WARS is produced for A&E by Hybrid Films. Daniel Elias and David Houts are the executive producers.
