The Party Down South in Murrells Inlet isnt very entertaining to some residents, and Georgetown County Council is feeling the brunt of residents complaints.
The show, which is currently filming at Kings Krest and in surrounding bars, restaurants and attractions in Murrells Inlet, has caused quite an uproar in the community.
Georgetown County Council will hear petitions from residents asking to halt filming at tonights meeting, which starts at 5 p.m. in the old courthouse, 129 Screven St., Georgetown.
Council will also be hearing a proposal to limit fireworks on the MarshWalk, brought forth by Murrells Inlet 2020, and the Citizens Committee for Ocean Highway wants a vote on the Pawleys Island median project.
The Burbank, Calif., production company that made Jersey Shore famous 495 Productions has a contract with CMT for eight episodes of a spin-off, but with a tweak of country living.
Known for its MarshWalk eatery offerings, quiet fishing areas and local businesses, Murrells Inlet rejects the Redneck Riviera title and prefers to be known as a nature lovers paradise.
Murrells Inlet is like Gods country to me, said Sean Sheely, a town native. The people in the inlet are the best people in the world and I would hate to see them being portrayed as anything but that.
The producers have it wrong if they think we are a bunch of beer drinking, uneducated rednecks.
