What is ‘Buckhead Shore’ all about?
‘Buckhead Shore’ promises to be a delectable young adult drama with all the fun and thrills that entails. It is about the interpersonal lives of a group of friends making a name for themselves in the 'Beverly Hills of the South' as they escape their everyday life and head to the lake shore to let loose. The show comes five years after 'Floribama Shore' and 13 years after the original 'Jersey Shore' premiered.
Jersey Shore debuted on MTV in 2009. Its popularity has since led to several spinoffs, including 'Floribama Shore' and 'Jersey Shore Family Vacation'. The original 'Jersey Shore' series is still MTV’s highest-rated series ever. The 'Shore' Franchise continues to keep its audience hooked with its dramatic plots.
What does the original 'Jeresy Shore' cast have to say about this new spin-off?
MTV recently decided to expand its francise with a couple of Shore releases that are in a line-up. Although, the original cast members of the 'Jersey Show' are not quite in the same mood. The cast expressed their dissatisfaction, with every cast member of 'Jersey Shore: Family Vacation' taking to Twitter to post a statement in protest with the hashtag #WeAreJerseyShore.
"As a cast that took a chance with a network in need, we put our most vulnerable moments on television for the world to see," the group statement reads. "We gave our all over the past 13 years, became a family, and continue to open our lives for the world. so please understand that we are not in support of a version that will exploit our original show, our hard work, and authenticity to gain viewers. Don't forget to tune in to an all-new season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation. #WeAreJerseyShore".
