Despite U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin’s complaints about MTV’s new reality show based in West Virginia, one of the executive producers of “Buckwild” said those involved with the show are not backing down.
Manchin had demanded that MTV cancel the upcoming show, saying it is not a true representation of the Mountain State and that many scenes were filmed after several takes. “Buckwild” follows a group of teenagers in the Sissonville area and will replace “Jersey Shore” on the network. Some media outlets have reported that some of the teens are from Charleston.
Executive Producer Colin Nash defended the show. “These kids have grown up in the hills and hollers of West Virginia and they have amazing, adventurous, carefree attitudes,” Nash said. “They live life loud and proud, and we follow that adventure.”
Nash made his comments on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
