'Showville' Promo: Small Town Americana Takes Center Stage - EXCLUSIVE

By Aly Semigran, Hollywood Staff

There's no business like show business and no people like show people, so it only makes sense for a reality competition to help those said people wind up in said business. Enter: Showville, AMC's new original unscripted program in which small town Americana get a shot at the big time.

The 8-episode series - which premieres on Thursday, May 23 at 9 PM ET - follows competitors in a small town talent show featuring local acts, who will get a chance to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight. The episodes will chronicle the process of the talent over the course of a few days, including working with actor/director Alec Mapa and choreographer Lisette Bustamante, and their eventual make-or-break performance. The winner of Showville gets $10,000 and, of course, bragging rights to being a hometown hero. AMC describes the hour-long episodes of Showville as ''a celebration of performing, and a fond, funny look at the lives, workplaces, and families of these acts and what happens to them when Hollywood comes to town.''

Watch the Showville promo, made exclusive to Hollywood.com in which America's new favorite underdogs (guys like Barry) take center stage, below.
