Kevin Smith Gets A Reality Show

Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash
Seems like AMC is going to continue their recent epic success, even though they are heading in a different direction. Known for quality original programing like Breaking Bad, Mad Men and The Walking Dead, it seems they are going in a different direction then usual. Kevin Smith has talked on Twitter and his website about a new reality show he is developing that centers around his comic book store, Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash. Dubbed a "Pawn Stars for Fanboys", the show will focus on the goings on inside the crazy comic book shop and will also feature the store purchasing interesting memorabilia from fanboys & girls. Wow, a reality show that I might actually want to watch.... Hmmmmm.

I like the idea, and if they can have some cool stuff on display then I'm all for it. I have been to Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash in Red Bank, NJ... and all I can say is that the place is epic. It's a huge comic shop that also sells tons of Smith movie-related memorabilia. They have the original full size Bluntmobile from Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back right in the middle of the store, as well as a ton of other Smith movie props. One of the coolest things they sell is all the T-shirts that any of the characters in Smith's movies have worn. They have them all... thats where I got my 'Count Cockula' & Moby employee shirts from Clerks 2. Smith also drops off autographed material and mixes it in with the regular stuff for no additional charge. That is so cool. I got a Mallrats movie companion book that was autographed by Smith for LESS THEN COVER PRICE. What other star does cool shit like that? Not many.

The reality show will be shooting over this summer and may appear sometime in the Fall 2011/Winter2012 TV cycle, so stay tuned for more details. I for one definitely will be. So will you guys be tuning in for this? Tell us your thoughts about a comic book store based reality show in the comment section below.
