Italian-American stereotypes are soooo 2009. The casting geniuses behind MTV’s breakout reality smash Jersey Shore are looking for a couple good ol’ boys and girls to live up to any and all cliches about Southerners on a new reality show called Party Down South — a “Snooki Meets Larry The Cable Guy-style” docu-soap headed to MTV.
If you’re a proud Southerner with a pickup truck, a Confederate flag bumper sticker, and a penchant for Nascar and Martina McBride, Doron Ofir Casting Productions would like to talk to you!
TMZ.com writes: “According to DOC, there will be a casting RV that’ll slow ride through Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennesse, Kentucky and West Virginia — and hopefully land a crop of rednecks wild enough to make Jersey Shore look like ‘Hey Dude.’”
In April, Code Red Productions announced that they too were looking for card-carrying rednecks to join the cast of its Jersey Shore-inspired Southern series, Redneck Riviera.
