495 Productions is moving into Beantown for its latest reality series, Southie Pride (w/t) for TLC, focusing on South Boston.

The Jersey Shore producers are currently casting for the series, which will go inside the homes of five South Boston women as they “struggle to make a life for their families and protect the people they love the most,” says the network.

Filming on the eight-episode series has just begun, and the series is slated to air on TLC in the fall.

“Spend some time with the women of South Boston and you quickly learn that pride runs deep, family comes first, and that their friendships and rivalries are forever,” said SallyAnn Salsano, president of 495 Productions. “And, their accents are wicked awesome.”
