TLC ORDERS WICKED AWESOME NEW SERIES

As one of the nation's most historic neighborhoods, South Boston is known for hard-working residents who display an outrageous passion for life, family, and town. Now, TLC takes viewers into this the tight-knit community in the new TLC series SOUTHIE PRIDE (wt), 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.

495 Productions (Jersey Shore) is producing the series for TLC. The series is currently casting, and filmed in South Boston this past weekend as the town suffered through a devastating Super Bowl loss by the Patriots. Eight episodes have been ordered, and the series is scheduled to premiere this Fall.

"Spend some time with the women of South Boston and you quickly learn that pride runs deep, family comes first, and that their friendships and rivalries are forever," said SallyAnn Salsano, President of 495 Productions. "And, their accents are wicked awesome."

The people and streets, and accents, of South Boston - or, Southie - have been the backdrop of hit movies and the focus of best-selling books, and now you'll meet the city's real-life characters as they celebrate their friendships, battle their rivals, and raise their children. SOUTHIE PRIDE offers an insider's look at the faith, hard work, and family that make this blue-collar enclave Beantown's beating heart. Get ready to experience the loudest, proudest, most in-your-face subculture on the Eastern Seaboard.
