DESCRIPTION:
(from Spike TV's press release, December 2012) Spike has once again turned the tables on the reality show genre with "The Joe Schmo Show." The one-hour, 10-episode series features one real guy who believes he is on a new, over-the-top reality show looking for America's next bounty hunter, but in reality is actually surrounded entirely by actors. His cast-mates are a motley crew of reality show clichés including Lorenzo Lamas, playing himself, who must do their best under these unusual circumstances to follow a pre-determined outline. "The Joe Schmo Show" premieres on Spike with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, January 8 from 10 PM - midnight, ET/PT. One of television's biggest and riskiest experiments once again looks to discover how a reality contestant would react to encountering a show filled with every outlandish element reality television has showcased. How far can producers push this 'reality,' and the ensuing ridiculous competitions? And of course, will the actors be convincing enough or will the unsuspecting "contestant" figure it all out?
