The unscripted "Small Town Security" follows the workplace drama of a small, family-run security and private investigation company in rural Georgia called JJK Security.

No wonder AMC describes the show as "a cross between Christopher Guest's brilliant films and the sublime absurdity of `The Office.' ".
