AMC greenlights ‘Road Show’

'Small Town Security' renewed by cabler

AMC has greenlit unscripted series “Road Show” while renewing “Small Town Security” for a second season.

Created and exec produced by Laurie Girion (“Welcome to Sweetie Pies”) and distributed internationally by Sony Pictures Television. “Road Show” will present small-town talent shows from around the country, offering locals a chance to shine in the national spotlight.

” ‘Road Show’ is a doc style talent competition series that celebrates the stories of the people who ever sang into their hairbrush, or lost sleep over their premiere in a community theater production,” AMC exec veep of original programming, production and digital content Joel Stillerman said. “It’s the local talent show writ large, and will focus on the personal stories as much as the actual talent competition.”

“Road” is scheduled to premiere in the second quarter of 2013, the same period that “Small Town Security” will return. Exec produced by Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver from Left/Right Films, “Small Town” drew 554,000 viewers for its season finale Sept. 2.

” ‘Small Town Security’ was such a great ride for us in season one, and we are thrilled to be able to continue that into a second season,” Stillerman said. “We have only just begun to get to know the folks at JJK Security, and there are incredibly funny and wonderful stories left to tell.”
