MTV is apparently preparing to replace "Jersey Shore" with a sort of "Jackass"/ "Jersey" hybrid.
"Buckwild" follows a group of nine young West Virginia chums finding new and creative forms of fun. Back-to-back episodes will air at 10 and 10:30 p.m. ET Thursdays beginning Jan. 3.
Perhaps capitalizing on shows featuring idiots like “Jersey Shore” and also the unfathomable popularity of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” the official announcement promises "transforming a dump truck into a pool party," "mudding" and constructing a human sling shot. One girl promises they have big personalities, but also “have even bigger hearts.”
John Stevens and Barry Poznick from Zoo Productions will executive produce "Buckwild" with Parallel Entertainment's J.P. Williams.
“Jersey Shore premiered in December 2009 and ends this December. The show spawned/ is to blame for introducing Snooki, JWoww and others to viewers.
In a story in The Charleston Gazette Alisa Bailey, the president and CEO of the Charleston Convention and Vistor’s Bureau said after viewing the trailer “That’s just most unfortunate.” She hopes viewers won’t see it as how West Virginians really live.
Adam Paul and MTV's Lauren Dolgen and Colin Nash will also be EPs. Here is a link to the teaser:
