Another set of producers looking to make a reality show about the Bakken

WILLISTON, N.D. – The creators of an upcoming reality TV show called “Guntucky” are in North Dakota looking for their next show.

Evan Stone and Adam Fox, executive producers for the show that’s scheduled to begin airing this spring on CMT, are spending a week filming in the Williston area. Stone said he wanted to check out North Dakota after hearing a radio news story about the oil boom.

“It just seems like this is really what America is all about,” Stone said. “Opportunities are here. You’ve got to be a hard worker and you’ve got to come and create that dream and it will pay off.”

Stone and Fox are developing a short “presentation tape” that they’ll pitch to production companies. If they’re successful, the next step would be to develop a pilot.

The Los Angeles producers still have three more days to film, but as of Friday, they said they envision the show centering around the boomtown of Williston driven by personalities of different characters.

“This is about real people and their real stories,” Stone said.
