With MTV’s “Jersey Shore” coming to an end, the network is readying a new group of party animals to fill the void – and the Thursday night time slot.
“Buckwild,” which follows a group of nine friends on their quest to entertain themselves in Sissonville, West Virginia, is set to premiere on January 3, according to MTV.
From the looks of the recently released trailer, “Buckwild” appears to incorporate some popular aspects of both “Jersey Shore” – booze and brawls - and TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” – ATVs and mud.
“West Virginia is a place founded on freedom,” one of the stars narrates at the beginning of the trailer. “For me and my friends, that means the freedom to whatever the f- we want.”
Reckless stunts ensue: From turning a dump truck into a swimming pool and taking turns riding on heavy-duty construction equipment to rolling down a hill tucked into a large tire.
“Our motto around here is, whatever happens, happens,” the narrator continues.
“Buckwild” will air back-to-back episodes each week starting January 3 at 10 p.m. ET.
