Spike is bringing back a series described as a fake reality show, which was one of the cable net’s highest-rated shows when it had its first run in 2003.
EW.com’s Inside TV reports that the network is reviving "The Joe Schmo Show.” The new version, "Joe Schmo: The Full Bounty," will star a contestant who believes he’s on a new reality show looking for a bounty hunter. But the other people on the show are actors portraying reality TV cliches. The cast includes Lorenzo Lamas, who will play himself, the story notes.
The contestant will face a series of challenges such as learning how to interrogate a hostile witness, the piece adds. The show will debut in 2013. The 10-episode season taped last month, the report notes.
Here’s the trailer:
