"Southie Pride" To Premiere On TLC This Fall

BOSTON (CBS) – Move over Jersey Shore, here comes "Southie Pride". TLC has ordered the new series that goes inside the homes of five South Boston women.

The series is currently casting and shot footage in South Boston this weekend as the Patriots suffered through a devastating Super Bowl loss.

Eight episodes have been ordered and the series is scheduled to premiere this fall. The series is being produced by 495 Productions, the same company that produces the Jersey Shore.

"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."

According to a press release, Southie Pride will feature, "The loudest, proudest, most in-your-face subculture on the Eastern Seaboard."
