AMC is developing a reality show with Kevin Smith?

So it seems, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

AMC, the network that has found success with the comic book-based The Walking Dead, is developing a reality project set in the comic book world with Kevin Smith.

Smith, an avid comic fan and writer who continued his big-screen features Jay and Silent Bob and Clerks in comic form, would executive produce the project, which will take place in and revolve around the two guys who run his New Jersey comic book store The Secret Stash, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

A casting call for the project posted on Facebook noted that Smith was not looking for actors, but instead comic book fans -- men and women ages 21-35 -- who live in the tristate area.

AMC announced plans to expand into unscripted programming in November and in April revealed series orders for two docu-series: Inside the DHS, from Dirty Jobs producer Craig Piligian and following Department of Homeland Security employees including Janet Napolitano; and Pitch, from Undercover Boss duo Eli Holzman & Stephen Lambert and revolving around ad agencies pitching clients and prepping ad campaigns.

-Joey's Two Cents: Kevin Smith wouldn't actually be on it, the guys who run the shop would be, and from their podcasts I know that they're interesting guys, so this could be something to keep an eye on...thoughts?


  1. I'd guess it'd be like Pawn Stars.

  2. If it's half as funny as Tell 'Em Steve-Dave, then I'm in.

  3. One would hope...their interactions with people (the episode at the Flea Market) are hilarious.
