It's been called the "Jersey Shore" of West Virginia and after months of talking about it the show "Buckwild" makes its premiere Thursday night.
That's despite efforts by US Senator Joe Manchin to have it yanked off the air.
Thursday evening the Mountain State will be thrown into the spotlight. That's because "Buckwild", a show that follows a group of kids from the southern part of West Virginia, makes its' debut.
The show is billed as an authentic comedy that follows an outrageous group of childhood friends.
In a short preview released by MTV you can see cast members driving through the mud, and turning a dump truck into a swimming pool.
Some folks have raised concerns because they're worried what kind of light it'll shed on West Virginia.
Among those opposed to the show is Senator Manchin. He has gone as far as to call the show fake and a travesty.
Despite all of that it debuts Thursday night on MTV, and most folks told 5 News they plan on tuning in.
Kayla Durst, a Morgantown resident, said she  wants to see what the conversation is all about.
"It'll pull me in," Durst said. "I'm from here so I can related to them (the cast members). I plan on laughing."
"Buckwild" premieres at 10 PM on Thursday night on MTV.
