Hollywood Comes To Walla Walla with AMC’s New Competition Series, “Showville”
Thursday, June 6th at 9pm ET/PT
WHAT: Walla Walla is set to make its television debut in an episode of AMC’s new competition series, “Showville.”
This new unscripted series is a celebration of performing and a fond, funny look at the lives, workplaces and families of local talent acts and what happens to them when Hollywood comes to town.
Auditions in Walla Walla were held at the Power House Theater drawing all kinds of talent, including singers, dancers, comedians and more. From the queue of contestant hopefuls, “Showville” mentors – actor/director Alec Mapa and choreographer Lisette Bustamante – selected four finalists, including Bizarre Love Triangle. The acts then had two days of intense coaching before getting up on stage in front of friends, neighbors, family and coworkers to show off their skills and earn the audience’s vote. Tune in to find out who was crowned the big winner and awarded a $10,000 prize and a loving cup signifying their achievement as the town's favorite act.
MORE INFO: Created and executive produced by Laurie Girion (“Cheerleader Nation,” “Welcome to Sweetie Pies”) and distributed by Sony Pictures Television, “Showville” consists of eight one-hour episodes and premieres on Thursday, May 23 at 9pm on AMC. The series centers around a small town talent show featuring local acts, who get the chance of a lifetime to be in the spotlight. 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.
