Trailer Park Boys is a Canadian mockumentary television series created and directed by Mike Clattenburg that focuses on the misadventures of a group of trailer park residents. The show's 10th season will be available for streaming on Netflix on March 28, 2016.
Mike Clattenburg, John Paul Tremblay and Robb Wells met in high school in the late '80s. The three always had a strange and bizarre sense of humour, always playing practical jokes on people and getting into trouble. Clattenburg was the champion of practical jokes and used these situations to study people's behaviours. Clattenburg started working for a local community cable channel and had his own show called "That Damn Cable Show" giving him a medium to express his off-the-wall sense or humour. Tremblay and Wells were huge fans of his sketch comedy and it gave them the bug to want to get in front of the camera as well. Clattenburg always involved his friends when he was starting out and suggested that Tremblay and Wells start experimenting with a video camera while passing the time in PEI running a pizza restaurant. The skits were crude and the sound was horrible, but it did serve as a good tool to improve on ideas and hone in on their acting abilities.
