TLC is hitching its ride to a South Carolina trailer park community.
The cable network home to breakout Here Comes Honey Boo Boo has ordered 10 hourlong episodes of Myrtle Manor, from producers the Weinstein Co. and Jupiter Entertainment.
The series follows the collection of personalities who reside in Myrtle Beach, S.C., the residence previously known as Patrick's Mobile Home has been handed down from generation to generation as new landlord Becky takes over the establishment from her father and attempts to build the transient community into a five-star resort.
Residents include folks who have lived in the recently renamed Myrtle Manor for anywhere from 30 days to 30 years, including tourists, grifters, truckers and more.
The docuseries will premiere Sunday, March 3 at 10 p.m., with each hour featuring residents as their lives collide in the eclectic neighborhood. Carmella Casinelli and Lucy Treadway will executive produce.
Manor continues the network's trend of focusing on lesser-seen parts of society, which have also included Breaking Amish, Long Island Medium, Little People, Big World and Extreme Couponing, among others.
