Ernest Cline to Host AMC’s ‘Geek Out’


Good news for geekish girls and boys of all persuasions: AMC is adding to its already fan-friendly lineup (Walking Dead, Talking Dead, Comic Book Men) with a pilot for ‘Geek Out’, a new unscripted television program hosted by Ready Player One author Ernest Cline. ‘Geek Out’ focuses on different facets of pop culture fandom, from Twilight to comic books and all points between.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, every episode will reward one superfan with his or her dream fandom experience. Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of meeting Cline (or reading his novel) will know that there’s no better person to host a program like this. Congratulations, Ernie, from all of us at Unbound!
