AMC'S NEW UNSCRIPTED SERIES, "COMIC BOOK MEN," DEBUTS FEBRUARY 12 AT 10 PM

Six-Part Series Executive Produced by Kevin Smith, Charlie Corwin and Elyse Seiden

Pasadena, CA - January 14, 2012 - AMC has something special in store with its newest unscripted series "Comic Book Men" (formerly "Secret Stash") debuting on Sunday, February 12 at 10pm ET/PT. Executive produced by Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Chasing Amy), Charlie Corwin's Original Media (LA Ink, Storm Chasers, Swamp People) and Elyse Seiden (Red State), the six-part series dives deep into fanboy culture by following the antics in and around master fanboy Kevin Smith's New Jersey comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, where both staff and customers geek out over mind-blowing pop culture artifacts and the legends behind them.

"Draper. Meth. Zombies. This show couldn't be on a better network. 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," said Smith. "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 'The Walking Dead.'"

"The comic book store is, in many ways, the corner bar for comic book fans. It is still this place where everybody knows your name, and you can go and geek out with like minded people. If I lived closer, I'd want to hang out here. It's got great energy, great personality and is a perfect portal into the world of comic book culture," said Joel Stillerman, AMC's SVP of original programming, production and digital content.

Leading the crew behind the Secret Stash counter are moody manager Walt, uber-nerd Mike, career slacker Brian, and Ming, the shop's go-to whipping boy. As the team buys, sells and discovers the treasures of the comic collecting world, they share all the juicy details with Kevin through their outrageous podcast, which is woven throughout the series.

Complementing the premiere will be a host of online activities and extra video scenes at AMCTV.com. Users will also be able to vote in polls related to the show's content, read blogs posted by the cast that discuss what happened after the cameras stopped rolling, and check out episode sneak peeks, extra/extended scenes, photo galleries and a talk forum.

AMC's Stillerman, Jason Fisher, SVP of Production, Mary Conlon, Vice President of Non-Scripted Original Programming, and Ari Mark, Director of Development, oversee development and production for the network's unscripted series.
