MTV reportedly refuses to allow "Buckwild' to be shopped around

“Buckwild” has officially reached the end of the road.

The MTV hit reality series that was canceled after star Shain Gandee’s death won’t be shopped to other networks.

Producer J.P. Williams told The Hollywood Reporter he would try to get the show from MTV and take it to another network. However, he said MTV executives won’t let the property go.

"MTV is the most hypocritical network out there," Williams said. "Van (Toffler) and Susanne (Daniels) can keep promoting pre-martial sex and promoting leaving the baby after you have it (on ‘Teen Mom’). I'm so glad they have found their moral bar."

Gandee, 21, was found dead April 1 along with his uncle and a friend in his vehicle. They had apparently been off- roading (or mudding) in a remote area in West Virginia. Carbon monoxide poisoning was ruled the cause of death by the local sheriff, most likely from the vehicle’s tailpipe being stuck in the mud.

The show’s second season was suspended after Gandee’s death, then the series was canceled April 9. Negotiations between the network and Williams that would have allowed the series to go elsewhere apparently broke down on Friday.
