MYRTLE BEACH — The Black Entertainment Television show “106 & Park” pulled its application for a special event permit to film episodes on the Myrtle Beach boardwalk this spring, city staff said.
Representatives from the show had been exploring the option of filming in Myrtle Beach at the end of March and in April, according to documents filed with the city. However, Natalie Peterkin, a production coordinator with the show, told the city in an email last week that plans changed and “106 & Park” was not planning to travel to Myrtle Beach for the shoot.
“106 & Park” is a video-countdown show that airs Monday through Friday and serves as the flagship program for BET. The network has never filmed in Myrtle Beach.
Peterkin told The Sun News last month that Myrtle Beach was being explored as a potential filming location because it gave the show the option to be outside with the beach and boardwalk as a backdrop. Peterkin did not immediately return a request for comment on Tuesday.
The permit application was before the Special Events Technical Review Committee. It had not yet been approved.
