[05/16/14 - 10:36 AM] AMC Greenlights Three New Unscripted Series Plus: in August, the network will premiere its next unscripted series, "4th and Loud" - focused on the inaugural season of the L.A. KISS arena football league team, featuring co-owners Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, of KISS fame.
SEASON(S): 3 (24 episodes, 0 of which have yet to air)
ADDITIONAL NOTES: confirmed as canceled on 10/9/14
DESCRIPTION: (from AMC's press release, April 2014) AMC announced today that its unique and unexpected unscripted series "Freakshow" and "Small Town Security" will premiere new seasons on TUESDAY, MAY 6 at 10:00 p.m. and 11 p.m. respectively as part of AMC's new "strangest night on TV." "Freakshow," will double the freak quotient with 16 new episodes debuting back-to-back at 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., immediately followed at 11:00 p.m. with the season three premiere of "Small Town Security," which will consist of eight half-hour episodes. "Freakshow" is executive produced by Todd Ray from Living Wonders and Greg Johnston from Endemol USA, and "Small Town Security" is executive produced by Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver and Mike LaHaie of Left/Right Films. In the new season of "Small Town Security," the unorthodox universe of JJK Security, the small, family-run security and private investigation company in Ringgold, GA, continues to expand as several new out-of-this-world characters join the cast. Chief Joan Koplan along with Dennis, Irwin, Christa, Brian and Joan's beloved dog Lambchop are also forced to contend with a series of unexpected shocks and developments -- from dwindling business and serious health issues to Dennis' continued gender transformation and Joan's "speecy spicy" meatball musical performance. In season three, these curve-balls force our cast to lean on each other like never before.
