A&E Real-Life Series Parking Wars Returns for an All New Season Wednesday, October 15 at 10pm ET/PT
Just when you thought it was safe to park again in Philadelphia, "Parking Wars" is back.

[via press release from A&E]


New York, NY, September 29, 2008 - Just when you thought it was safe to park again in Philadelphia, season two of A&E's hit real-life series PARKING WARS premieres Wednesday, October 15 at 10PM ET/PT.

The people you love to hate � the men and women of the Philadelphia Parking Authority - are back ticketing, booting and towing the cars of problem parkers who express their outrage in furious Philly fashion.

Returning favorites include "Gadget Man" Garfield and his booting partner Sherry who'll be hunting for scofflaws in a new high-tech van. The PPA ticket writers are also back to face-off with irate citizens and dodge angry drivers, including wisecracking Brian, short-but-tough Carmen, the trouble-attracting Danielle, male-attention-magnet Marylin, the protective supervisor Luz and fun-loving Shawn. New faces include rookie ticket-writer Mike who clashes with drunken revelers on wild South Street, "glamour gal" Marlene, tough-talking Lori, and Jen who is so gung-ho to boot, she'll even scan for scofflaws on her own block.

All roads in Philly still lead to the impound lot - the "car prison," where tempers flare as drivers struggle to get their cars back. This season, a religious couple looks to the power of Jesus to help them get back their car, police are called in to investigate an alleged theft, and a teenager blames everyone but herself for being towed.

Our "heroes" not only endure verbal abuse but they can also experience real danger. When a police officer is shot and killed, the unarmed parking officers are reminded how scary it can be to wear a uniform and walk a gritty beat.

Robert Sharenow, Laura Fleury and Jordana Hochman 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. Series Producers are Po Kutchins and Dan Flaherty.
