TruTV to examine jobs we love to hate

Launching docu-reality series from RDF USA

Some of the most thankless professions are being showcased in "All Worked Up," a new docu-reality series for truTV.

The RDF USA-produced series, which has received a six-episode order from the network, tells the first-person stories of several people working jobs that get them yelled at, spit on and sometimes assaulted.

The cast of recurring characters on the show include a couple who repossess vehicles in Wendell, N.C.; a process server in New York; the head of security at an amusement park in Allentown, Pa.; a code enforcer in a housing community in Fort Myers, Fla.; and a head of security for professional wrestling and two tow truck drivers in Las Vegas.

The show, exec produced by RDF USA's Chris Coelen and Lauren Gellert, is slated to premiere Oct. 19.

Gellert said she and her development team looked at truTV shows such as signature series "Speeders," which center on conflicts with authority.

"We started exploring other jobs with that nature that resonate with people," Gellert said. "In 'All Worked Up,' conflict meets humor."
