KISS members featured in new AMC series 4th And Loud

KISS members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons are featured in a new AMC series, “4th And Loud”, which focuses on the launch of the pair’s Arena Football League team, the L.A. KISS.

The 10-episode series will follow the duo, along with fellow co-owners, long-time KISS manager Doc McGhee, managing partner/owner Brett Bouchy and president/owner Schuyler Hoversten as they and the players and coaches work to turn L.A.'s first professional football team in years into a winning franchise.

As part of the 14-team Arena Football League, the L.A. KISS are the fourth AFL team to represent Los Angeles and the second to play at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

"We are thrilled to partner with AMC in bringing our show to the viewing public," says 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."

"We look forward to capturing all the trials and tribulations of launching a sports franchise in a great sports city like Los Angeles," adds AMC's senior vice president of unscripted programming 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."

"4th And Loud" will premiere on AMC on Tuesday, August 5 at 10/9c.

KISS recently launched a summer tour of North America with Def Leppard.
