(Hardy) – The Discovery Channel has greenlighted a new series that takes place in Hardy, AR.
The six-part show, titled Clash of the Ozarks, is set in the town of Hardy and focuses on the feud between two families that dates back generations. The series also will focus on other locals, including a mountain man who doesn’t own a pair of shoes and hasn’t lived in a house for years, and a gun-toting elderly woman who is fiercely protective of her family and is rumored to be clairvoyant, according to a Discovery Channel press release.
The show has rubbed many from the region the wrong way, with internet comments on reports of the show accusing the Discovery Channel of exaggerating the people displayed in the show and playing on Arkansas stereotypes to get viewers.
The show is scheduled to premiere February 25 at 9 PM Central.
