Eight days after the death of one of its stars, MTV has cancelled its reality series Buckwild.
Deadline reports that while producers had already shot material for future installments, they couldn't see how the show could continue without 21-year-old Shain Gandee, who was killed with two other men when they were overcome by carbon monoxide after their truck got stuck in mud while off-roading near Sissonville, West Virginia.
Producer J.P. Williams, who also manages some of the cast members, blasted MTV for pulling the plug. He told The Hollywood Reporter, "This is the network that has shows about teen pregnancy. They'll stick by a show that allows you to abandon a child, but a kid dies by accident doing what he does for a living [mudding] and they cancel the show?" Williams says the decision, "smells of sh**...on every level."
Meant to be a replacement for Jersey Shore, Buckwild debuted on January 3, 2012. In February of this year, two cast members were arrested in West Virginia in two separate incidents: Michael Burford was busted on a DUI charge, while Salwa Amin was arrested for felony drug possession in a police raid that netted both heroin and large amounts of oxycodone.
