GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama beach town doesn't want to
be the home of a Southern-fried version of MTV's "Jersey Shore"
reality show.

The Gulf Shores City Council has approved a law that would require anyone filming a TV show in town to get a $250 permit.

The rules would allow city officials to refuse shows they don't like.

Mayor Robert Craft says the law isn't aimed solely at a proposed show called "Redneck Riviera."

But he adds that officials are aware of the possibility of the show landing in Gulf Shores.

A production company has set up a website seeking auditions for
the show, which supposedly would include lots of Confederate flags,
pickup trucks and partying on the coast.

    To many Alabamians play the role of stupid red necks when in public on in front of a camara. They think its cute.
