The Bachelorette is going Southern.
CMT, aka Country Music Television, is hoping to hit pay dirt with a new series to be set in the swamps of Louisiana, RadarOnline has exclusively learned. It’s Swamp People meets The Bachelorette meets Duck Dynasty.
The network has begun to cast for the show with filming slated to begin in August, a production source confirmed.
“We’re looking for a genuine down home Southern girl who is prepared to embrace the swamp lifestyle,” the insider told RadarOnline.
“Men will be vying for her heart while they partake in traditional Southern activities including hunting, mud bogging, camping and boating in the swamp.”
Though the ultimate Dixie hasn’t yet been selected, the source revealed the network is searching for someone who is approximately 21 to 28 years old, “Caucasian, beautiful, single, spunky and loves the outdoors.”
“An accent is just icing on the cake,” the source added.
The show is being produced by Andrew Glassman, whose credits include NBC’s series Average Joe, a show which in its first season finale attracted more than 25 million viewers ranking it as the second highest rated reality telecast in NBC history.
