AMC has ordered a docu-series focused on the first season of the LA KISS arena football league team, the network announced today.
From Thinkfactory Media, show will travel with Los Angeles’ new arena football team and feature players and coaches along with LA KISS owners, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. AMC has ordered 10 episodes of the project.
“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.”
Exec producers include Adam Freeman, Adam Reed and Leslie Greif.
