7 - Austin and Howard Raishbrook of Netflix's 'Shot in the Dark'

Dec 18, 2017, 07:00 AM

Austin and Howard Raishbrook are brothers (twins, actually) who star in the new Netflix documentary series "Shot in the Dark."

Along with their younger brother Marc, they are freelance news videographers -- or what we call "stringers" in the news business. They work at night listening to police scanners and drive all over the greater Los Angeles area to film crime scenes, fires and accidents -- which they in turn sell to news outlets to air.

If you enjoyed the 2014 film "Nightcrawler" with a very intense Jake Gyllenhaal character, you should definitely put this real-life version on your list to binge-watch (fun fact: they did ride-alongs and consulted for the film).

The Netflix series follows their company, RMG News, along with two other rival companies, OnSceneTV and Loudlabs, as they chase news stories and face fierce competition to get the better shot, first.

It's a dangerous job, and for the average viewer of the show, probably something that you will walk away from with more questions.

Lucky for me, Howard and Austin Raishbrook joined me on Olympic & Bundy to talk about the filming of the show, the moral implications of a job like that and even what they thought about the movie "Nightcrawler."
