"Showville" (TV show), formerly known as "Road Show," on AMC is a reality docu-series that organizes competitions in small towns across the country, featuring local talent who get the chance of a lifetime to be in the spotlight.

The show gets into the heart of America's obsession with performing and becoming a star under the notion that every town has a story and every town has a star. The series centers on small-town talent shows, and the comedy that ensues when a little bit of Hollywood shows up to give people who have long submerged their artistic dreams of becoming a star a chance to be the big fish in the little pond of their hometown. Each episode of the series holds "open call auditions," welcoming everyone from singers and dancers to comedy acts and jugglers. The series director and choreographer, who are the series' two mentors, then select four finalists to participate in a talent show held at a local venue. The audience gets to know the finalists and their back-stories as they are coached over multiple days by these mentors. The goal is to bring out the best of their abilities in preparing them for their performance at a "Big Show" in front of a local audience who will select the winner.

Actor Alec Mapa and choreographer Lisette Bustamante are the performance coaches, working with the show's finalists each week to prep them for their performance in front of a live, local audience.

"Showville" is created and executive produced by Laurie Girion ("Cheerleader Nation," "Welcome to Sweetie Pies") and Storyvision Entertainment and distributed internationally by Sony Pictures Television.
