Pahrump TV station, employees headed to HBO

File this one under “unexpected.”

The owners and on-air talent of a Pahrump TV station are headed to HBO.

The six-part documentary series “Small Town News: KPVM Pahrump” will showcase “the microcosm of daily operations at KPVM revealing a staff of idiosyncratic, larger-than-life individuals as they endeavor to deliver local news with care and vigor in an ever-shifting media landscape,” according to the news release announcing the series.

Among the show’s real-life cast of characters are:

— Vernon Van Winkle, who owns and operates the station with his wife Ronda, a singer-songwriter.

— news director Deanna, her co-anchor Eunette and reporter Missey.

— and John, Missey’s husband and the station’s fun-loving weatherman.

“With warmth and humor, the series celebrates the can-do spirit, community pride and political diversity among the station’s charismatic and often humorous employees,” the release states.

“Small Town News: KPVM Pahrump” debuts with back-to-back episodes at 9 p.m. Aug. 2 on HBO, and it can be streamed on HBO Max.
