According to The Hollywood Reporter, 495 Productions and Jersey Shore creator SallyAnn Salsano is taking her classic MTV formula to a new network, launching a CMT series called The Dirty South this fall.
While details are still under wraps, we’re guessing that a group of Southern pals will get together and do crazy things, likely involving horses, thick accents, and real sun instead of self-tanner.
But given the rural, Southern theme of Buckwild, it’s surprising that The Dirty South is so similar — especially since the former was already renewed for a second season. However, at the same time, with the success of both Jersey Shore and Buckwild, there’s no reason not to capitalize on the ever-growing fan base.
Frankly, we’d love to see more Jersey spin-offs, but we’ll still be checking out The Dirty South. Will you tune in this fall? Tell us below!
