SPRING IS SIZZLING ON VH1 WITH THE SERIES PREMIERES OF "WALK OF SHAME SHUTTLE" AND "HOT GRITS"
"WALK OF SHAME SHUTTLE" PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18th AT 9PM ET/PT
"HOT GRITS" PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25th AT 8PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY (February 18, 2015) - Rise and shine! Spring is coming and VH1 brings you a dose of raucous humor and supersize personalities to shake off those winter blues. It all starts as the network takes hangover humor on the road with "Walk of Shame Shuttle," premiering Wednesday, March 18th at 9PM ET/PT. In this all-new series, VH1 takes an uninhibited ride with hard-partying merrymakers rehashing the previous night's escapades in the harsh daylight of the following morning. The following week, on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at 8PM ET/PT, tune in for the premiere of "Hot GRITS" a revealing look at the lives of seven girls looking to shake things up south of the Mason Dixon line.
The "Walk of Shame Shuttle" service is the brainchild of undergrad-turned-entrepreneur Kellyann Wargo. Where others simply saw hung-over revelers trudging home after a night of festivities, Wargo found a business model - and an opportunity to make some money while providing an essential service. And so, the "Walk of Shame Shuttle" was born. For the nominal fee of five dollars, Wargo or one of her fellow WOSS drivers (Jordan Pease and Michelle Collins) provide real life partygoers with a ride home the morning after.
In the series, VH1 has rigged each driver's car with cameras to document every hilarious ride. More often than not, the passenger seat also becomes the hot seat, providing the platform for passengers to candidly discuss myriad off-color subjects, including relationship red flags, the 'friend zone,' 'bro code' and '50 shades of cray.' Along the way drivers also give no-holds-barred tips and irreverent commentary on love and relationships, covering everything from friends with benefits, Tinder do's & don'ts, weave terminology and the true definition of a "basic b*tch," among other topics. Each episode will be capped off by crowning the "Trainwreck Of The Week." Find out why sometimes the morning-after stories are better than the ones from the night before when "Walk of Shame Shuttle" premieres Wednesday, March 18 at 9PM ET/ PT on VH1.
VH1 is headed to the deep south with the series premiere of "Hot GRITS" on Wednesday, March 25 at 8PM ET/PT. This down-home series explores the lives of loud and proud GRITS ("Girls Raised In The South") from the southern town of Valdosta, Georgia, well known for breeding some of the most charming and jaw-dropping young women in America. With the warm air and painted sky as their background, these young ladies know what true southern hospitality looks like. However, don't let their dainty image and sweet disposition fool you, in this small town you'll find professional models that also drift cars and hunt raccoon in their spare time. The cast includes seven young women who prove that Southern girls aren't all cut from the same cloth. Dynamic duo, Emily and Hailey are the poster girls for southern belles: they love luxurious cars, glamorous shopping sprees and have dreams of living the high life in the big city. Jenna, Ratchet, Sarah and Bear are typical country girls. They wear camouflage, carry shot guns and serve up southern sass for dinner. Rounding out the group is Jennifer, who recently remarried her ex-husband. Nothing is off limits for these "Hot GRITS," whether it is getting rid of a live in ex-boyfriend, revealing a secret marriage to a traditional family or breaking out of the small town life. "Hot GRITS" has plenty to show about living life in Valdosta, Georgia, where being pretty is the norm but living outside of the box is a must. Tune in to the series premiere of "Hot GRITS" Wednesday, March 25 at 8PM ET/PT on VH1.
