The filming of “Party Down South” may be heading way south — to Pensacola Beach, Fla.
A Feb. 24 article in the “Pensacola News Journal” revealed that producers of the show “are shopping Pensacola Beach as a possible site to shoot a second season” of the reality show.
The first season was shot in Murrells Inlet and led to the creation of a film ordinance for Georgetown County.
Under the terms of the new rules, it is unlikely that a second season could be filmed in the county.
The show is CMT’s top-rated offering among the 18-to-24-year-old demographics and traced the experience of eight southerners coming together in a single house for the summer.
The show follows the cast through their daily experiences, including work, the relationships they formed and the partying they did in the evenings.
Postings on the TMZ website noted that the cast had hired managers in an effort to get more money for a second season of filming; however, a later posting indicated that CMT was standing firm of its contract offers.
The same website revealed that cast member Lyle Boudreaux was arrested on a burglary charge for reportedly breaking into a car and stealing a credit card from a purse. He was released on $10,000 bond.
