MTV has put in a 12-episode order for Buck Wild, a docuseries from Zoo Productions and Parallel Entertainment, which trains its lens on a group of friends from rural America, fresh out of high school.
The series will follow the antics of the friends, as they work local jobs and study in college in a small town in West Virginia.
“We know that showing unique slices of youth culture on MTV is something that resonates with our audience,” said David Janollari, MTV’s head of programming. “With Buck Wild, we’ll give our viewers a singular and fun glimpse at this generation’s experience as we go into Appalachia to capture the lives of a loveable group of dynamic young people.”
Buck Wild is executive produced by John Stevens and Barry Poznick from Zoo Productions, and J.P. Williams from Parallel Entertainment. Lauren Dolgen, Colin Nash, Jeffrey Hevert and Michelle Klepper are the executives in charge of production for MTV, and Jessica Zalkind is the talent executive.
