AMC has ordered a reality show featuring Kevin Smith’s comic book shop in New Jersey. Read on for all of the details on this new show that might actually be worth checking out once it launches…
Kevin Smith’s comic book store in New Jersey, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, is going to be brought to the small screen with Smith executive producing the vehicle with AMC right by his side.
AMC said in their synopsis of the show, ”Set in Kevin Smith’s iconic comic shop Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, the unscripted show captures the world of the neighborhood comic book store and fanboy culture.”
The premiere will take place in early 2012 and feature 6 hour-long episodes.
Kevin Smith said in a statement, “Draper. Meth. Zombies. This show couldn’t be on a better network. AMC is to television what Miramax was to Cinema back when I got in the game: they’re the premiere destinations for any story-teller looking to spin an offbeat yam that no other outlet has the stones to touch.”
He added, ”And as if I didn’t love them enough, now they’re putting my friends on TV! I’m ecstatic, proud, and extremely lucky to be in bed with a network I watch religiously anyway. And if they’d pushed just a little harder in the negotiations, I’d have done this show for no payment beyond early access to every episode of Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Walking Dead.”
It will certainly be interesting to see how this show stacks up with AMC’s giants that have become staples — aka Mad Men and Breaking Bad.
There’s a lot of new reality show’s popping up from names we might not expect.
