Matt signs deal with Spike; includes commenting on reruns of Joe Schmo.
After being humiliated on The Joe Schmo Show, Matt Kennedy Gould has signed a development deal with the show’s network, Spike TV. He “will appear in at least two projects in the coming weeks,” reports. One of those projects starts tomorrow night, when Spike begins reairing the series. Matt “will provide short commentaries before and after each segment of the show, describing what he was thinking at the time.” Tough work. In addition, he’ll participate in the “Spike 52: The Hottest Holiday Gifts” special airing Nov. 23.
