AMC ORDERS UNSCRIPTED SERIES FOCUSED ON THE INAUGURAL SEASON OF THE LA KISS ARENA FOOTBALL LEAGUE TEAM

Series Will Also Feature Team Owners Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, Of KISS Fame

NEW YORK, NY - February 7, 2014 - AMC today announced that it had greenlit a docu-series focused on the inaugural season of the LA KISS arena football league team. The show, which will follow dedicated players and coaches trying to turn LA's first professional football team in years into a winning franchise, will also feature owners Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, of KISS fame, along with long-time manager, Doc McGhee.

Produced by Thinkfactory Media (Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Hatfields & McCoys), the 10-episode (60-minute) series will premiere on AMC this summer.

"We look forward to capturing all the trials and tribulations of launching a sports franchise in a great sports city like Los Angeles," said Eliot Goldberg, AMC's senior vice president of unscripted programming. "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."

"We are thrilled to partner with AMC in bringing our show to the viewing public," Paul Stanley said. "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."

Executive producers of the as-yet-untitled show are Adam Freeman, Adam Reed and Leslie Greif. Goldberg, Marco Bresaz and Andrea Beckerman will oversee the series for AMC.

Later this month (Feb. 25), AMC will premiere a new unscripted series, Game of Arms. A look inside the raw and highly competitive world of American arm wrestling, the series follows the members of five regional arm wrestling clubs as they hit the road and wager their reputation, relationships and money for the sport. The series hails from Matt Renner and Ethan Prochnik, the Emmy Award-winning producers of Deadliest Catch, and executive producer Dan Ilani, their partner in Undertow Films.
