Philly's mean streets, Part 2: 'Wreck Chasers'

PHILADELPHIA - September 3, 2010

"Wreck Chasers" is a reality show about the city's notoriously aggressive tow truck drivers.

It's shooting in Philadelphia and is slated to premiere in late October on the TLC network.

Production crews are following several drivers with one as-yet-unidentified Philadelphia towing company as they race to beat the competition to wrecks.

Jim Kowats, the show's executive producer, says filming started in May.

The show is the second series currently focusing on the trials and tribulations of Philadelphia motorists.

"Parking Wars," in its third season on the A&E cable network, features Philadelphia Parking Authority employees at work.
