U.S. net truTV has commissioned Katalyst, the prodco set up by Jason Goldberg and actor/producer Ashton Kutcher (pictured), to craft a factual series looking at the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

The tentatively titled California DMV: Field Offices is the network’s first project with the indie, and promises unprecedented access to several offices and locations, and to provide a behind-the-scenes look at the personnel who deal with everything from issuing licenses and registering vehicles to maintaining accident records and investigating complaints.

Marc Juris, executive VP and general manager of truTV, said: “This promises to be a fast-paced, fun series, and we’re excited to be working with Katalyst for the first time.”

Goldberg, co-founder and CEO of Katalyst, added: “We’ve all spent time at the DMV, but few people know what it’s like to work for the DMV. California DMV: Field Offices promise to be a glimpse at what DMV workers experience, from strange to hilarious.”

Hedda Muskat serves as executive producer for Katalyst, while Anthony Horn serves as executive in charge of production for truTV.
