MTV Crews Not Expected for Spring Break Season

PANAMA CITY BEACH - The spring break season is about to kick off and many people are wondering if MTV crews will be here.

Bay County film commissioners say the last time major MTV crews came to Panama City Beach was several years ago.

This year the city has not partnered with MTV for any spring break coverage. Instead, film commissioners say MTV typically brings in smaller crews.

"What we can expect from MTV for spring break is the minor shows. We will maybe see a few personal appearances, a few celebrity appearances, and then they will say 'live from Panama City Beach, with all the gorgeous people, now back to your show,'" said Julie Gordon, a Bay County film commissioner.

Gordon says there are other TV crews in town for some pilot series from A&E, TLC, and the Food Network. The shows will center on families and food instead of spring break.
