AMC Greenlights Two Reality Series, One Set In Kevin Smith’s Comic Book Shop

The network known for their scripted dramas is entering the reality TV market with two new series. AMC announced that JJK Security and Kevin Smith's Secret Stash have both been greenlighted for a season order. Both series will start in 2012, with Secret Stash premiering some time in the first quarter and JJK Security in the third. After budget cuts have affected three of their series, the choice to move into unscripted shows is likely also due to AMC being strapped for cash.

Secret Stash will be executive produced by Kevin Smith and take place in his New Jersey comic book store, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash. The goal of the series will be to display the world of comic book shops and the culture that comes along with them. Smith expressed his excitement about working with the network, “Draper. Meth. Zombies. This show couldn’t be on a better network.” Six hour-long episodes of the series have been ordered.

The network's other reality series, JJK Security, will revolve around a small private security firm in rural Georgia. The odd characters that make up the family-owned business hire themselves out as P.I.'s and bodyguards to anyone in need of their services. AMC has ordered Eight half-hour episodes.
