TLC picks up Southie series
After months of hearing about casting calls and rumors of a South Boston-based reality show, confirmation is finally here.
TLC said today in a press release that it has ordered eight episodes of a series called “Southie Pride.” However that is a working title.
“TLC takes viewers into this the tight-knit community … going 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,” according to the press release.
The series is currently casting and even filmed recently in South Boston to record the “devastating” Super Bowl loss last night.
495 Productions, known for the hit MTV show “Jersey Shore,” will produce the series for TLC.
“Southie Pride” is scheduled to premiere in the fall.
