AMC GREENLIGHTS "SECRET STASH"

New York - September 1, 2011 - AMC announced today that the network has greenlit the unscripted television series Secret Stash executive produced by Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Chasing Amy), Charlie Corwin's Original Media (LA Ink, Miami Ink, Storm Chasers and Swamp People) and Elyse Seiden (Red State). Set in Kevin Smith's iconic comic shop Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, the unscripted show captures the world of the neighborhood comic book store and fanboy culture. Season one is six, one-hour episodes and is currently scheduled for a 1Q 2012 launch. The series exemplifies AMC's goal to be the definitive home for quality storytelling.

"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 WALKING DEAD."

"AMC has a strong commitment to quality storytelling and we're excited to help further shape this legacy," said Corwin. "Kevin and I developed this series to create a story for fanboys by fanboyism and we are determined to reveal to audiences the insular yet colorful fanboy world."

"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 at 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.

Secret Stash (Working Title)

The Secret Stash is a one hour series that captures the world of the local comic book store. Way before comic book culture went mainstream, the comic store has not only been a place for people to buy, sell, or trade for cool stuff; but also to hang out and be part of a community that just loves comics. Secret Stash will capture both of these aspects of comic store life. It will document the daily banter of The Secret Stash and it's employees and devoted customers; and it will capture the fun and emotion of buying and selling collectibles and comic memorabilia that happens in comic book stores all across the country and in mega-venues like Comic-Con. AMC's Joel Stillerman, Senior Vice President of Original Programming, Production and Digital Content, 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. Eric Wattenberg from CAA represents Original Media.

Smith does a daily radio show from 8 to noon, Monday to Friday, at SModcast.com. SModcast.com is the home of TELL 'EM, STEVE-DAVE - the podcast that features the Secret Stash crew.
