'Buckwild'

Show Will Live On

In Davy Crockett Territory

0412_buckwild_texas_alaska_article
Substitute some cow dung and meth for mud ... and you have a reincarnated version of "Buckwild" ... the new and improved Texas and Alaska editions.

Producers of the hit show are undaunted by MTV pulling the plug ... after the death of the show's star, Shain Gandee

J.P. Williams from Parallel Entertainment -- one of the companies behind "BW" -- tells TMZ the show will be retooled, with a new name and a new network.

In fact ... Williams tells us he's already sent his casting scouts to The Lonestar State and the state where you can see Russia from your backyard.

Producers think it will be a cinch to snag a new network ... since "Buckwild" was the 3rd highest- rated show in MTV.

We're guessing their first choice had to be Mississippi ... but it's too hard to spell.

This producer really seems to be a nutcase. WE DON'T NEED MORE TRASH TV! LET IT GO DUDE! You've been all over the media crying about MTV deciding to get rid of this show, no one in the towns where these trash shows are filmed WANTS them filming there, it contributes to the dumbing down of America - JUST STOP IT.

Buckwild is about hillbillies. I don't think Texas and Alaska really have hillbillies. It won't be the same. It seems very generic, but it turns out that it isn't. Now you can say that Honey Boo Boo is the same thing, but I would call that more country folk.


There were a lot of attempted rip offs of the Jersey Shore, but none of them came close to the original. I think the same will happen with these other shows. For some reason, MTV comes up with some good reality shows now and then. I think it is the cast a lot of the times.


Texas I am just thinking a lot of ranches and cattle and maybe some Hispanics wandering over the border. Then Alaska is just cold and there are hardly any women. I guess they ride around on a dogsled maybe.

Hey stupid Tmz I live in Mississippi and we are not assbackwards we have tons of casinos here and we don't all live in double wides and ride 4wheelers. There's a huge lgbt population here and we are well known for tons of good things, so please come here and do a show so we can change the idiotic perception people have of Mississippi please I beg you...

Technically, Davy Crockett territory is Tennessee, not Texas. You know... The state where he was born, where he lived the majority of his life... The State he represented as a Congressman!!! He was in Texas for just a little over a year. Damn... read a book!!

What a stupid and uncalled-for jab at MS. the past is just that-the past. That's a stupid as thinking CA is full of gold-digging, gun-slinging cowboys drunkenly singing along to some piano tune in a saloon! Have you ever ventured to the South and sipped mint tea, or rode a bicycle down the boardwalk on our beaches? Or visited Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero. To Lose yourself in the heart of all music- the blues?? Probably not.
