“Myrtle Manor” is a reality series filmed at Patrick’s Mobile Home Park off of Highway 15 in Myrtle Beach. This is the show’s second season.
The show, seen on TLC, averaged 1.1 million viewers over 10 weeks last year airing on Sundays. The show moved to Thursday nights this season and will air after “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.”
Also competing for your attention is the debut of “Party Down South,” on CMT. It was filmed in Murrels Inlet and featurs cast members from southern states, although none were from South Carolina. It airs at 10 p.m. on the country music channel.
The James Brown biopic, “Get on Up,” is set to be released Aug. 1. The film, starring “42” star Chawick Boseman, follows the life of the Barnwell, S.C.0born Godfather of Soul from his upbringing outside Augusta, Ga. The film also stars Viola Davis (Boseman and Davis have South Carolina roots), Octavia Spencer and Jill Scott, who plays Brown’s second wife, Deedee Jenkins.
As the Golden Globes honors “American Hustle” director David O. Russell, SC film buffs are thinking: “Whatever happened to “Nailed”?
That’s the offbeat comedy Russell directed and which filmed in Columbia in 2008. Its star-studded roster included Jessica Biel (who was seen canoodling with then-boyfriend/now husband Justin Timberlake) and Jake Gyllenhaal (who invited then-girlfriend/now ex-girlfriend Reese Witherspoon to town), John Goodman, Catherine Keener and James Marsden.
In late 2013, the MPAA, which sets ratings, issued a PG-13 for the film, fueling speculation that it might be released. Production shut down in 2008 when financing became dubious; Russell abandoned the director’s chair on the film in 2010. Only one scene was left to film.
Biel, speaking with Collider.com, spoke about it last week: “I never would have guessed that that was going to be the experience. I never could have understood the craziness that would have ensued over the last five years with that film. You work so hard on something and to not finish it is a map of heartbreak. To this day, it’s not finished, in the way that David [O. Russell], Catherine Keener, Jake Gyllenhaal and all the cast who worked their butts off would have liked to have seen it be finished, and to respect what we did. It’s tough. It’s a tough thing to swallow, for sure.”
