Kevin Smith just landed an unscripted reality series called Secret Stash!
Here's what it's about, and here's what Kevin Smith has to say about his new home at AMC:
Secret Stash, executive produced by Kevin Smith, Charlie Corwin’s Original Media and Elyse Seiden (Red State), is set in Smith’s iconic comic shop Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. AMC has ordered 6 hourlong episodes of the series, which aims to capture the world of the neighborhood comic book store and fanboy culture, for a 1Q 2012 launch. “Draper. Meth. Zombies. This show couldn’t be on a better network,” said Smith, referring to AMC’s flagship dramas Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.
“AMC is to television what Miramax was to cinema back when I first got in the game: they’re the premier destination for any story-teller looking to spin an offbeat yarn that no other outlet has the stones to touch. 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.”
Sounds incredible to us!
Not only that, but when he talks about the show amidst the other line-up, we can't help to think that AMC is one of the best places to be on TV for unique programming.
Though, financially they've been treating their shows like jerks.
Why can't it be all good over there?!
Are U excited for this new show??
