'Buckwild'

Show Will Live On

In Davy Crockett Territory

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.

They make this new show and then at the end of the season, one of the starts will die from CO poisoning.

It's not living on in "Davey Crockett" land since Davey was from Tennessee. He only died in Texas trying to help them get their freedom only to become a backwards state.

I use to be an avid TMZ watcher & big fan, getting tired of all the negative trash talk of every state but California, it's pathetic... Also they trash almost every band unless its an 80s band or a band from California... I don't know why they think "MAX" is an expert on good music... His long hair doesn't hold power & knowledge.

The remark about Mississippi is offensive. I live in Mississippi and I don't know anyone who acts "Buckwild'. RedNeck isn't a region, it's an attitude.

All i want to know is are their any lawyers out their that are willing to start suing channels like MTV for putting such trash on our TVs and lowering the American IQ, if so please add whoever is responsible for Snookie and also Ryan Seacrest for giving us the Kar-trashians
