AMC’s latest unscripted venture “Small Town Security” doesn’t premiere until July 15, but we’ve got an exclusive first look at a new promo. With a plum spot behind “Breaking Bad,” AMC is banking on the quirky reality series about a family-run security and private investigation company based in rural Georgia.
Although non-fiction, AMC bills the show as an “Office“-Christopher Guest film hybrid, following a group of oddball characters who run the day-to-day business of JKK security.
Below, we’re introduced to Dennis “The Lieutenant’ Croft (top left), a man full of hope and vision — if only his team could comply. According to AMC, “the Lieutenant dreams of building a solid team of security guards to patrolfactories, corporate facilities and events with the interests of their clients always at the top of his mind. To Lt. Croft, there is nothing ‘small town’ about what he does. With a military background and a boundless passion for all things security, he is determined to turn the guards of JJK into an ‘elite force.’ A self-described ‘misfit’ who has found his life mission in serving JJK and The Chief, Lt. Croft is an endlessly fascinating and complex character who gifts the series with some of its most unbelievable surprises.”
The first eight-episode season of “Small Town Security” kicks off on Sunday, July 15 at 11/10c on AMC.
