'Welcome to Myrtle Manor' premieres Sunday night

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A new reality show set to air on TLC for its first episode Sunday night at 10 p.m. features a Myrtle Beach mobile home park. The show is titled, "Welcome to Myrtle Manor."

Some Grand Strand residents have said they're unhappy about the series because they're afraid it will cast a negative light on the city. The cast members talked to WMBF News Thursday and said everything viewers will see is real and not scripted, but also that they hope to portray Myrtle Beach in a positive manner.

"We're not ashamed of Myrtle Beach. We're not gonna do anything in our power to embarrass Myrtle Beach. We want the whole world to know what a great place Myrtle Beach is," Cast Member Jeana said.

The Myrtle Manor Trailer Park, formerly known as Patrick's Mobile Home Park sits off Highway 15. The show's promotional trailer features dramatic events during the 10-episode series.

WMBF News asked viewers to explain on our Facebook page whether or not they plan to watch the show.

Lisa said, "Absolutely not. Our Myrtle Beach area has so much more to offer, having a show like this is a disgrace."

Glen said, "Can't wait to see the show!"

Cheryl said, "DVR is set to record!"

One of the cast members named Roy said he has heard negative comments about the show, but wants Grand Strand residents to give the show a chance.

"There have been a few negative comments and I've heard some actually. People have said some things to me and I really wish people would wait and watch the first episode to really have an opinion because it's not what people think it is," Roy said.

The first episode of "Welcome to Myrtle Manor" will air Sunday night at 10p.m. on TLC.
