TLC announces premiere date for reality show set in MB

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Thanks to a new reality show, Myrtle Beach will be featured on national television, putting the city in the spotlight once again.

TLC has announced that "Welcome to Myrtle Manor" will debut on March 3 at 10 p.m.

The producers of this show are keeping this one very quiet but they did tell WMBF News a few things off camera. Back in September, WMBF News Anchor Theo Hayes found out the show was tentatively called 'Trailer Park Lives.' But a recent press release from The Learning Channel indicates the series is titled Welcome to Myrtle Manor.

The network released the following statement in late December:

TLC announced today that it recently completed production on Welcome to Myrtle Manor, a new ten part series that provides viewers a window into a trailer park in Myrtle Beach. Each sixty-minute episode follows the daily drama of these quirky Southern residents with wildly different personalities as their lives collide in this proud, tight knit community.

The show was filmed just off of Highway 15 in Patrick's Mobile Home Park, following several characters who in real-life, live in this mobile home community.

Big time Hollywood producer Damon Epps says he's being tight lipped about details for the integrity of the show and for security of the players.

Inside, we saw a set decorated with a big sign that reads 'Myrtle Manor' and security standing by on patrol.

Those who live and work in the area say they've heard rumors about the show and according to clerks at Al's Food Mart, a nearby convenience store. They had to sign a location release because several women on the show came in to make a purchase.

"They came in and bought cigarettes and beer, just real nice," comments Charles Moore, clerk at Al's Food Mart.

Many folks in the area that have heard about the filming think it's pretty neat.

"I think it's a good thing. It will put Myrtle Beach more on the map, bring more tourists. Since we have shows being filmed here, it might help out the economy," says nearby resident Lance Gray.

This show is just the latest to take on the Grand Strand. Earlier in the summer of 2012, portions of Revolution, a new NBC series about an American family fighting to reunite during a time when all power ceases to exist, were shot at Freestyle Music Park.

Producers for Welcome to Myrtle Manor promise more details are to come.
