Network bosses bring singing competition docu-series to AMC

6/13/2014

Amc bosses have come into the reality television fold, greenlighting the network's first talent competition docu-series, Road Show. The network is most well known for its critically acclaimed dramas including Mad Men and Breaking Bad, but recently started a venture into reality television with Small Town Security, which fared well among audiences. So much so that not only was it picked up for another season, but another small town reality series will be airing on AMC as well. Execs have now picked up Road Show, an unscripted series which features hopefuls in small-town talent competitions. Open auditions will be held across America, looking for singers, dancers, comedians, etc., and judges will decide which acts will have the chance to perform in the town's final contest. AMC's Executive Vice President of original programming, Joel Stillerman, is positive the show will not fall into the usual genre of outright singing competitions like American Idol or The Voice, but instead give a deeper look into the contestants' lives and lifestyles within their small communities. He says, "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. It’s the local talent show writ large, and will focus on the personal stories as much as the actual talent competition." The eight-episode series is set to air on AMC next spring (13).
