Anthropologists studying the Jersey shore will soon have another quirky region to examine: MTV has ordered 12 episodes of “Buck Wild,” a series set in rural West Virginia among a group of friends who have just graduated from high school.
Series produced by John Stevens and Barry Poznick from Zoo Prods. and J.P. Williams of Parallel Entertainment. Series will track the exploits of the recently matriculated Appalachian denizens as they head off to college, work at local jobs or just struggle to get by.
“We know that showing unique slices of youth culture on MTV is something that resonates with our audience,” said MTV programming head David Janollari.
