“Welcome to Myrtle Manor” is the newest reality show to join the lineup of reality shows on TLC. On Feb. 25 The Charlotte Observer published an interview with two officials of "Welcome to Myrtle Manor.," which premieres on Sunday, March 3 at 10 p.m. ET
Set in the former Patrick’s Mobile Home Park on Highway 15 in Myrtle Beach, S.C., “Welcome to Myrtle Manor” will introduce viewers to the “everyday lives” of Myrtle Manors residents as the Patrick family works to renovate the trailer park.
Alon Orstein, vice president of production and development East Coast for TLC told The Charlotte Observer that “Welcome to Myrtle Manor” is a 10-part series, but since the series has not aired yet, no decision has been made yet about a second season.
When asked why this “residential site in the heart of Myrtle Beach” was chosen as the location of this series, Orstein answered:
“The town of Myrtle Beach is a massive tourist destination. We wanted to dig deeper and learn more about the local population and the town itself. We are also intrigued by the Patrick family and waned to follow their story of running a multi-generational, family-owned trailer park."
