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"
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.
