Panama City Beaches were packed with locals and visitors Memorial Day, but they weren't the only ones out there.

A camera crew was drawing a lot of attention out behind Pineapple Willy's.

"All of a sudden the camera crews came out and I was like hold on a second I was made for T.V. so I was like hello, camera time and then like, I wasn't even looking for camera time and they came looking for me. And they approached me right here in my seat," said Sophie Breeden.

An unidentified film crew was seen following a group of young people having fun on the beach, filming as they interacted with various people.

"They've got everybody out here, it's crazy," said Breeden. "They're playing beer pong, they're getting turnt."

"They were cool, just chillin'," said Robert Edwards. "They were just filming us. We were just hanging out. They were hanging out with us. It was no problem."

Production members were seen asking people for permission and to sign consent forms.

"She came up to us and said are y'all fine being on camera. And we were like hell yeah," said Eugenee Pryor.

But multiple beach goers tell NewsChannel 7 the crew was tight-lipped about what exactly they were doing out on the beach.

"They wouldn't tell us," said Edwards, "They told us what TV show, they were with MTV. That's all they told us."

"That's it," added Pryor. "Flora-Bama is what I think y'all might be calling it. That's the only thing I know."

"MTV is out here brah, Panama City, Pineapple Willy's," Breeden said. "They're out here!"

"We are very excited to see the show," Edwards said, "because honestly, we had no idea what the show was about."

We reached out to the production team and the local film commissioner who each would not confirm where the production team was from.

They also told us they would not release any statements about the day's activity.
