Hollywood Comes To Holland Competition Series: Showville

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

Holland is set to make its television debut in an episode of AMC’s new competition series, Showville. This new unscripted series is a celebration of performing and a fond, funny look at the lives, workplaces, and families of local talent acts and what happens to them when Hollywood comes to town.

Auditions were held at Holland’s Park Theater and drew all kinds of talent, including singers, dancers, comedians, and more. From the queue of contestant hopefuls, Showville mentors—actor/director Alec Mapa and choreographer Lisette Bustamante—selected four finalists: Jackie Joy and Michael O’Hair of Knotty Bits, Doug Peterson, Maciek Biezunski, and husband-and-wife team Darlene and Randy Schaap. The acts then had two days of intense coaching before getting up on stage in front of friends, neighbors, family, and co-workers to show off their skills and earn the audience’s vote. Tune in to find out who was crowned the big winner and awarded a $10,000 prize and a loving cup signifying their achievement as the town's favorite act. 

Holland will be featured in an episode of Showville airing Thursday, May 23, at 9 p.m. 

Created and executive produced by Laurie Girion (Cheerleader Nation, Welcome to Sweetie Pies) and distributed by Sony Pictures Television, Showville consists of eight one-hour episodes and premieres on Thursday, May 23, at 9 p.m. on AMC. The series centers around a small-town talent show featuring local acts, who get the chance of a lifetime to be in the spotlight. Each week, a one-hour episode of Showville touches down in a quintessentially American small town and puts together a talent show in a mere four days.
