Louisiana Boasts Many Southern-Focused Reality TV Shows

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Add “Duck Dynasty” to the growing list of reality shows with outrageous characters who play up Southern stereotypes.

Georgia has Alana Thompson, the 7-year-old beauty pageant regular who stars in TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” Alabama has “Rocket City Rednecks” who make moonshine-fueled rockets for fun in the National Geographic Channel series. And Florida is the site of A&E’s “Lady Hoggers,” about women who wrestle and hunt wild boars.

But few states can boast more reality shows than Louisiana, and the state’s specialty appears to be rough-hewn, blue-collar types. Besides the alligator-wrangling Cajuns on History’s “Swamp People,” the bayou state now has a series about men who trap swamp rodents on Spike TV and another about a family of duck-hunters who earn a living making duck calls and decoys on A&E’s “Duck Dynasty.”
