If you were bummed about missing out on the cash cow that was Jersey Shore, you're in luck—the casting and production companies behind the show, Doron Ofir Casting and 495 Productions respectively, are making a new show! This time though, instead of perpetuating the guido and guidette stereotypes, they're tackling a whole new group...southerners.
A press release for the show (to be called Party Down South) that went out a few days ago pretty much says it all:
"Doron Ofir Casting is seeking Gulf-Coast Southerners who are at least 21 years old and looking to prove that the party down South will rise again. If you call ‘gators your neighbors, reckon Mardi Gras should be a national holiday, your daisy dukes fit just right and are ready to make your Maw Maw and Paw Paw proud, we are looking for you!"
Likewise, a website has popped up for the series that pretty much calls for the same thing, except in slightly more...colorful language. Apparently, their 'g' key was broken when they reached the end of most action verbs.
"Doron Ofir Casting in association with 495 Productions is looking for 8 guys and gals who are keepin’ it Southern, are the loudest, proudest and want to party their asses off on the sickest reality show during one big Crawfish peelin’, Poboy eatin’, Bourbon drinkin’ Dixie lovin’ bayou summer! ... Screw sippin’ champagne, let’s make it a six pack summer! Oh Lawdy, it’s time to Party! Apply now!"
Too soon to tell if this is the next reality television show gem that we've been waiting for, but it's looking promising.
