Los Angeles Kiss, a new Arena Football League expansion team owned by Kiss’s Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and manager Doc McGhee, will soon have its story told on AMC. The documentary reality series will follow the inaugural season of L.A. KISS. The 10-episode series premieres on AMC this summer.
“We look forward to capturing all the trials and tribulations of launching a sports franchise in a great sports city like Los Angeles,” says AMC’s Eliot Goldberg. “These are incredibly dedicated athletes, coaches and management who want to win, and the fact that the team has rock and roll royalty in the owners’ box just adds another great dimension to the series.”
“We are thrilled to partner with AMC in bringing our show to the viewing public,” added Paul Stanley. “Anyone who knows Gene and I know we have never played by the rules. This opportunity to see the making of our team of rebels, the LA KISS, from behind the scenes will once again show everyone that we play to win.”
