The AMC network has ordered 10 episodes of a new ‘unscripted’ series which would follow the inaugural season of arena football team the Los Angeles KISS. The show is also set to include team owners Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.
Simmons, no stranger to the ‘unscripted’ camera crew series, had his own reality show on A&E for seven seasons, called “Family Jewels”.
“We are thrilled to partner with AMC in bringing our show to the viewing public,” said Paul Stanley. “Anyone who knows Gene and I knows we have never played by the rules. This opportunity to see the making of our team of rebels, the LA KISS, from behind the scenes will once again show everyone that we play to win.”
In addition to Gene, Paul and and members of the team, the show will also feature longtime KISS manager Doc McGhee.
“We look forward to capturing all the trials and tribulations of launching a sports franchise in a great sports city like Los Angeles,” says AMC senior vp of unscripted programming Eliot Goldberg. “These are incredibly dedicated athletes, coaches and management who want to win, and the fact that the team has rock and roll royalty in the owners box just adds another great dimension to the series.”
The one hour show is still nameless, and will be produced by Thinkfactory Media and is set to launch this summer.
