MTV GETS "BUCKWILD" WITH NEW SERIES PREMIERING ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 3 AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT

"BUCKWILD" Follows Nine Young, Carefree and Adventurous West Virginians Who Find Unique Ways to Create Their Own Fun

SANTA MONICA, CA (November 29, 2012) - MTV today announced that "BUCKWILD," a new series following a group of nine young, carefree and adventurous friends living in West Virginia, will premiere on Thursday, January 3 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The half-hour, 12-episode series will air two back-to-back new episodes each week, from 10:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Having known each other for years, the young people in the series are united by the deep pride they have for small-town American life, in which they find unique ways to create their own fun. From transforming a dump truck into a pool party to building a human sling shot, they live their lives loud and proud without restrictions. Beyond dating, friendship, and their love of mudding, the bond they share with family and friends is always at the core for this fun-loving group.

Meet the adventurous young people of "BUCKWILD:"

Shain: Everyone in Sissonville, W. Va. knows Shain. Sociable and loyal, he was the high school Prom King, but missed the dance because he had to work. He's done every job from coal mining to being a garbage man but as long as he is using his hands, he's happy. He loves mudding, hunting and four-wheeling but most of all he loves his parents, who live three doors down.

Shae: Around town, Shae is known as the Southern belle. She's been chased after by every eligible bachelor in Sissonville but somehow always ends up with the bad boy. Currently a nursing student, this college girl is also a country girl through and through. In fact, her first kiss was on the back of a four-wheeler.

Anna: Even though she comes from the ritzier part of town, Anna would rather spend her time getting dirty with the crew down in the creeks and hollers. She's a true wild child at heart who finds herself at a crossroads in life trying to decide between work and school. One thing is for certain: Anna isn't afraid to stand up for herself.

Joey: Shain and Joey have been best friends since they could walk. Once they learned how to ride a bike, it's been bumps, bruises and hospital visits for these adrenaline junkies. With his Justin Bieber haircut and laid-back country attitude, Joey thinks he's the biggest ladies man in town.

Ashley: Wild and carefree, Ashley is known for being one of the guys. She'd rather get down and dirty in the mud than deal with local drama - although she doesn't mind starting it. She's the bravest and most honest of her friends, but always the one to stir the pot.

Cara: Originally hailing from Morgantown, the biggest college town in West Virginia, Cara had seen her fair share of the club and bar scene. But when the drama of having an ex in the same town became too much, she decided to escape back to her Sissonville friends to get her mind straight.

Tyler: Known for his innocent good looks, Tyler has a reputation for leaving a trail of broke hearts all over town. He recently finished up another semester in college but the flexible schedule of working at his dad's company sometimes seems more enticing. Recently Shain and Joey have taken Tyler under their wing on a mission to make him less of a pretty boy and more of a country man.

Katie: A well-rounded college girl, Katie loves to spend her free time away from school, back with her friends in Sissonville. She is afraid of anything potentially dangerous, which means the gang loves to push her to her limit whenever they can.

Salwa: A recent college graduate, Salwa lives at home with her strict parents. Whenever she's able to slip away, she's the first one at the party. The oldest of the group, Salwa is always down for a good time and everyone loves her "tell it like it is" attitude.
