NEW YORK, NY (July 10, 2018) – 495 Productions and Complex Network’s Rated Red are thrilled to announce that for the first-time cast members from both PARTY DOWN SOUTH and PARTY DOWN SOUTH 2 will reside under one roof to bring the party to Rated Red in all new episodes of PARTY DOWN SOUTH (Shorts). The series launches Wednesday, July 11, 2018 on RatedRed.com with 36, 10-minute episodes.
PARTY DOWN SOUTH (Shorts) brings together eight, fan-favorite cast members who are let loose on St. Petersberg, FL. Every situation that this group finds themselves in goes sideways – in a hilarious (and country) way. Whether they are scaring the crap out of each other, washing cars for extra cash, bull-riding, or creating a makeshift waterpark in their backyard…it’s always a party with this bunch. Time together is never short of laughs, getting down and dirty in the mud, cookouts, pranks, the endless search for love, and blowing things up. Naturally when they are together it is always hilarious hijinks with just the right amount of drama.
“PARTY DOWN SOUTH 1 & 2 were, hands down, two of my favorite shows to work on, and bringing the cast members together to create these shorts, was laugh out loud funny. They are a never-ending goodtime, filled with funneling, food and friendship & tears“ says SallyAnn Salsano, 495 Productions Founder & CEO.
PARTY DOWN SOUTH (Shorts) is executive produced by 495 Productions Founder & CEO SallyAnn Salsano and Drew Tappon; and Complex Networks Justin Killion and Melanie Moreau.
