AMC Orders Fanboy Reality Pilot GEEK OUT

AMC Orders Fanboy Reality Pilot GEEK OUT

This is one show that should appeal to most of us here on CBM. Deadline report that AMC is developing the pilot for a show based around anything and everything that can be "geeked" over, which will be hosted by author/screenwriter/fanboy Ernest Cline.



According to Deadline, AMC has given a pilot order to Geek Out (working title); an unscripted wish-fulfillment tv project featuring super-fans of movies, comic books, books, actors, athletes, musicians, video games - you get the idea - hosted by Fanboys writer Ernest Cline. The concept would see Cline and his co-host (the search is still on for one apparently) "travel the country and give obsessed fans the surprise of a lifetime with a special experience related to their obsession". AMC’s EVP of original programming Joel Stillerman had the following to say about the show. “Conceptually, Geek Out is right in AMC’s wheelhouse of appealing to the fanboy community and ultimately creating an indelible moment in one lucky person’s life. Geek Out celebrates a different facet of fanboy and fan-girl culture, as we ‘geek out’ at the kind of epic level that usually only occurs at Comic Con.” AMC seem determined to capitalize on the success of The Walking Dead and Kevin Smith’s reality show Comic Book Men with yet another fanboy-freindly tv show, so let's hope it's a good one.
