PARTY DOWN SOUTH (CMT)
Returns Thursday, August 20
returning this summer (yet to premiere)
thursdays from 9:00 PM-10:00 PM EST
6 (??? episodes)
(from CMT's press release, July 2015) From partying down to growing up, CMT today announced a new night of original programming spotlighting two very different groups of Millennials as they navigate the highs and the lows of adulthood. CMT's top-rated series "Party Down South" returns for its wildest season yet on Thursday, August 20 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, immediately followed by the series premiere of the coming-of-age docu-series "Gainesville" at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. "Gainesville" picks up where "Party Down South" ends and highlights the next phase of life as a group of seven young friends transition into adulthood by banding together to face a broad range of issues, including paying for college and moving out of their parents' house. The evening kicks off with the original "Party Down South" cast - Daddy, Lyle, Murray, Walt, Hannah "Hott Dogg," Lauren, Mattie and Tiffany - as they reunite in St. Petersburg, Fla. for a 10-episode season filled with adventure, partying and of course, drama. Season four opens with one of the most heated fights in the show's history when Tiffany literally goes head-to-head with Hannah over her new boyfriend. In between the explosive fights and blooming relationships, an old flame comes into the picture resulting in a life-changing event for Lyle. Meanwhile, Walt and Murray find themselves hitting it off with the women of St. Pete, and "Martha" decides to crash her own birthday party. "Party Down South" remains CMT's most social show, and season three ranks as the network's highest rated and most buzzworthy original series this year, bringing in nearly 3 million total weekly viewers across all platforms and generating two million impressions on Twitter.
