Locals and locals at heart will have to wait a bit longer to see themselves on TV.
The CMT debut of “Down South,” also known as “The Dirty South” and “Party Down South,” among other names is now scheduled for “after the first of the year,” said a spokeswoman for AKR Public Relations, which represents 495 Productions and “Down South’s” executive producer, SallyAnn Salsano.
The reality show created a stir in Murrells Inlet when the cast moved into Kings Crest, a residential-zoned home in the heart of the marsh’s residential area.
The 24-hour-a-day filming as well as noise and lights associated with the production drew complaints from nearby residents and led to the creation of a Georgetown County ordinance to cover film and TV projects within the county.
The spokeswoman said she could not comment on the show’s debut, which originally was scheduled for Nov. 8.
