Myrtle Beach will no longer be the only area in South Carolina that is shamed on national TV. Bravo TV is planning a reality series based on Charleston's southern aristocracy.
The series called “Southern Charm" will "feature the high life in the Holy City." writes The Post & Courier and "will open the gates of plantation homes for a “real-life look at how modern-day Southern aristocracy lives,”"
FITS News has some more info on the show, including some of the cast:
FITS has learned that Shep Rose – nephew of former S.C. Department of Public Safety (SCDPS) director Boykin Rose – will also be one of the stars of the new series, which is set to begin filming next month. Also starring? Whitney Sudler-Smith, one of the show’s executive producers.
Sudler-Smith is the son of Patricia Altschul, a former Manhattan (now Charleston) socialite who purchased the city’s historic Mikell House in 2008 for a cool $4.8 million. His cousin is engaged to actress Sophia Vergara.
Additionally, former state Treasurer Thomas Ravenel, who "served 10 months in federal prison in 2008 for a drug conviction."
