Great news, Rhett Rheese (muggum for those that remember him), just announced this here http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...47#post1870747
Payroll, Angie, Inundated, MitchO, etc.,
The news is going national, so I thought you should hear it from me. We just shot Joe Schmo 2! It's in the can and being edited as we speak. This time, we went after the relationship genre (if you've seen enough Bachelors, you're gonna love this one). And we have a Joe Schmo AND a Jane Schmo. Mark down June 15 on your calendars, and thanks for all the continued support! It's been murder keeping this a secret!
p.s. Ralph the host is back, in disguise as arrogant but horny British host Derek Newcastle. Accent and all. Funnier than ever!
And here is the official news release!
'Joe Schmo' Meets 'Jane Schmo' in June
(Monday, April 12 08:31 AM)
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Spike TV has wrapped photography on the second season of its popular reality entry "The Joe Schmo Show." Creatively (and hopefully tentatively) titled "Joe Schmo 2," the series will premiere on Tuesday, June 15. Fortunately, there will be a twist.
This time, in addition to a Joe Schmo, there will also be a Jane Schmo. Raising the improv ante, the team of actors will surround not one, but two real people -- a man and a woman -- who think they're part of a reality television show.
The new show-within-the-show is called "Last Chance For Love" and will parody relationship shows like "For Love or Money" or "The Bachelor." The absurd competitions, shocking twists and over-the-top eviction ceremonies will be overseen by Ralph Garman, the host of the first "Joe Schmo." This time he'll be in disguise playing pompous British host Derek Newcastle.
"We know that guys despise reality relationship shows, so what better genre to mess with on behalf of guys everywhere," says Kevin Kay, executive vice president of programming and production, Spike TV.
"Joe Schmo" writer-creators Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese return for the second go-round, joined by David G. Stanley, Scott A. Stone and Anthony Ross.
The October finale of the first "Joe Schmo" drew 3.4 million viewers, mammoth numbers by Spike TV standards.
