'Buckwild' Star Shain Gandee

The honchos behind "Buckwild" are taking the reality TV high road ... telling TMZ they will NOT be filming during Shain Gandee's funeral.

J.P. Williams, the CEO of Parallel Entertainment -- one of the companies that produces the show -- tells us they would never film the funeral "in a million years" out of respect for Shain and his family.

Filming funerals is not outlandish ... after all TLC aired "Best Funeral Ever."  And Shain's could be right up there.

As TMZ previously reported ... J.P.'s company along with Zoo Productions will cover the cost of the funeral -- set to take place Sunday. People are encouraged to wear camo in honor of the 21-year-old.

Just got back to Bugtussle, TN after attending the funeral. Gave my personal condolences to his wife/first cousin. So tragic.

Its amazing how no one has respect for the dead because he was a so called redneck. Camo is only for soldier's! REALLY!!!!!! YES the kid acted stupid on TV but that doesn't mean he was stupid or as dumb as a box of rocks it is just a damnable shame this kid can't Rest In Peace
