AMC has announced the arrival of a new late-night talk show, tentatively titled Geeking Out, hosted by Kevin Smith (Comic Book Men, Clerks) and Greg Grunberg (Heroes, Heroes Reborn, Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens). The half-hour show will take a close look at pop-culture through the lens of the entertainment fanboy/fangirl, featuring talk, special clips, celebrity interviews, and remote segments.
The show is expected to premiere with a special episode covering Comic-Con International: San Diego in late July, with eight more episodes to run weekly starting in late summer.
According to Kevin Smith, “AMC has been my TV family for five seasons of Comic Book Men now, so I know that Geeking Out is in the perfect, fan-friendly network hands.”
“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,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC.
