Showville

60 minutes

Fame meets Main on AMC's new unscripted competition series, Showville. Created and executive produced by Laurie Girion (Cheerleader Nation, Welcome to Sweetie Pies) and distributed internationally by Sony Pictures Television, the eight-episode series centers around a small town talent show featuring local acts, who get the chance of a lifetime to be in the spotlight. Showville is a celebration of performing, and a fond, funny look at the lives, workplaces, and families of these acts and what happens to them when Hollywood comes to town. Each week, a one-hour episode of Showville touches down in a quintessentially American small town and puts together a talent show in a mere four days. On Day One, the series' talent coaches, actor/director Alec Mapa and choreographer Lisette Bustamante, host open auditions. Any and every kind of performer is welcome to show their stuff and tell their story; at the end of the day, Mapa and Bustamante select the four acts they feel will put on the best show for the town. The coaches have the next 48 hours to mentor each finalist in preparation for the “big show” and the performers must also juggle their real jobs, their families and their nerves. Day Four brings the final competition, presented at a well-known town venue for a live, local audience. Then it's up to the performers' fellow citizens -- including friends, family, co-workers and neighbors -- to choose the victor, who is awarded $10,000 and a loving cup that signifying their achievement as their town's favorite act.
