“Small Town Security” picked up for a second season
Hollywood's spotlight on Ringgold's JJK Security reality show continues to shine brightly. AMC announced the renewal for a second season of “Small Town Security,” the unscripted workplace series that centers on chief Joan Koplan's tight-knit, family-run security and private investigation company.
Executive-produced by Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver from Left/Right Films, last year's flagship season debuted in July 2012, to mixed reviews, but battled its way to another shot at the big screen. While basically focused on the daily routines of the business, the praise as well as the disdain voiced in reviews lies largely on the oddly compelling relationships of the colorful employees who make up the staff at JJK.
Joel Stillerman, AMC’s lead man of original programming, production and digital content, said there is plenty of bizarre material yet to air.
“‘Small Town Security’ was such a great ride for us in season one,” Stillerman said, “and we are thrilled to be able to continue that into a second season. We have only just begun to get to know the folks at JJK Security, and there are incredibly funny and wonderful stories left to tell.”
“Small Town Security” airs Sundays at 11 p.m. (EST) on AMC.
Chief Joan Koplan, the heart of the staff, said although any negative feedback is naturally disheartening, the majority of the feedback was tremendously encouraging and the entire staff was grateful for the generosity of her fans.
