AMC ORDERS LA ARENA FOOTBALL SHOW
AMC Orders Arena Football Reality Show With Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley

The cable network's latest unscripted plans will focus on the inaugural season of the Los Angeles KISS.

AMC is hoping TV's love affair with football will extend to its latest unscripted order -- and bringing a bankable reality star along for the ride.

The cable network, which continues to make inroads into reality, has ordered 10 episodes of a new unscripted series following the inaugural season of arena football team the Los Angeles KISS. The show will include team owners and namesakes, KISS frontmen Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.

Simmons, of course, is no stranger to a camera crew. The bass guitarist starred on his own reality show, A&E's ‪Gene Simmons Family Jewels‬, for seven seasons.

“We are thrilled to partner with AMC in bringing our show to the viewing public,” said bandmate and business partner Stanley. “Anyone who knows Gene and I knows 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.”

In addition to the duo and other members of the team, the show will also feature longtime KISS manager Doc McGhee.

“We look forward to capturing all the trials and tribulations of launching a sports franchise in a great sports city like Los Angeles,” AMC senior vp 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.”

Still untitled, the one-hour series is produced by Thinkfactory Media (Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Hatfields & McCoys) and will launch summer 2014. Executive producers include Adam Freeman, Adam Reed and Leslie Greif. Goldberg, Marco Bresaz and Andrea Beckerman will oversee for AMC.

February sees the launch of AMC's latest reality foray, Game of Arms. Small Town Security, Comic Book Men, Freakshow and The Pitch are among its other unscripted offerings -- though the network remains best known for its dramas.

NHL COMMISSIONER GARY BETTMAN MEETS
By Chris Peters | Hockey Writer

The NHL's Stadium Series has been a rousing success to this point. Everything from the party-like atmosphere of LA to the large television audience for Sunday's game. So Commissioner Gary Bettman has to be happy about how things are going for his league.

He also has to be especially happy to have been granted the once-in-a-lifetime experience of having Gene Simmons, lead singer of KISS, nearly lick the top of his head.

Shared by the Denver Post's Adrian Dater on Twitter, Sports Illustrated photographer Robert Beck was the man to snap this photo and thank goodness for that. KISS was the headlining musical group that played the first Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks. Apparently Bettman just wanted to stop by and say thanks or something.

I'm sure the commissioner is really happy Beck was there to capture this great moment in sports history. This is the iconic photograph for which Bettman will be remembered (I hope).

CUSTOM HOCKEY MASKS AUCTIONED FOR CHARITY
CLICK HERE to bid now

By Brian Stubits

KISS does one performance at an outdoor NHL game in Los Angeles and suddenly they are everywhere in the hockey world. The power of makeup and rock is strong.

Gene Simmons got to live most hockey fans' dreams by putting NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman into a headlock. That made for one heck of a photo that should hang in the NHL offices forever more.

Now the NHL is auctioning off custom made KISS goalie masks, each of which was autographed by the band members; Simmons, Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.

From the NHL's auction site, here's a little more information.

To commemorate the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium, four goalie masks were designed and painted by renowned sports artist David Arrigo. Each mask features the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings logos alongside KISS Imagery and/or the likeness of the four members of the legendary rock band and 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees KISS.

Masks will be auctioned one at a time:

Mask 1 – Tuesday, January 28 2014 – Friday, February 7, 2014
Mask 2 – Friday, February 7 – Monday, February 17, 2014
Mask 3 – Monday, February 17, 2014 – Thursday, February 27, 2014
Mask 4 – Thursday, February 27, 2014 – Sunday, March 2 2014

Procees of the auction will benefit the Kings Care Foundation and the Anaheim Ducks Foundation, fair considering the were the teams playing the game that the KISS rockers were performing at.

These masks aren't going to come cheap. With more than a week left, bidding is already more than $1,200. That's the cost for awesome masks with rock legends on them.

To see all of the masks up close, you can check them out on artits David Arrigo's website -
