A new entry joins the late-night wars with a talk show to be hosted by Kevin Smith and Greg Grunberg in the works at AMC. Variety reports that the 30-minute show — working title “Geeking Out” — “will tackle all things pop culture through a fanboy lens.”
The plan appears to be to premiere the show with a special episode in late July covering Comic-Con International: San Diego. Eight additional episodes are on tap to run weekly beginning late this summer, Variety notes.
In announcing the project, Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV, said: “Kevin and Greg are both true fans of this content, and share a deep passion for talking about it, and engaging other fans about it. But it is their natural chemistry as hosts that really brings this idea together. As part of our growing non-fiction slate, we wanted to create a broadly entertaining venue for hardcore fans and general viewers where we can break down all things fanboy on a weekly basis; and we wanted to bring those fans great interviews and exclusive looks into the world of fanboy culture.”
