TV show filming in Myrtle Beach mobile home park

Chances are you’ll be seeing some version of Myrtle Beach on TV in the coming months.

Crews for weeks have been filming in the back of Patrick’s Mobile Home Park off Highway15 in Myrtle Beach, with several decorated trailers, a plastic pool and a large “Myrtle Manor” sign in a 1950s flair.

The shooting has created a buzz around town, much to the frustration of the crews, who wanted to keep the project under wraps until its broadcast debut.

Crews and other officials involved in the filming have been tight-lipped about the show and when it will air. They have refused to answer any questions and asked reporters to leave the mobile home park.

The “docu-soap” will air on TLC with an expected December premiere, according to a report in the Knoxville [Tenn.] News Sentinel, which wrote a profile about the company involved in the filming.

Jupiter Entertainment, a Knoxville,-based company that is involved in production of shows such as Oxygen’s “Snapped” and Discovery Channel’s “Sons of Guns,” is involved in the Myrtle Beach show, but declined to comment.

Stay tuned.
