HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Cameras and production crews for the reality show Party Down South can't hide on the beach in Biloxi. The show set up tents in front of the Biloxi Beach Company and cast members were spotted wearing the company's shirts on Friday hanging out at the rental company's hut.

The reality show is described by producers to be about "young, brazen adults enjoying a wild summer of extreme fun."

William Fuson, 9, is a fan of the show. When asked what he likes about it, he said with a big smile on his face, "Mmm the drama."

When William heard the cast was filming in Biloxi, he talked his dad and brother into checking it out with him. Before they could get close to the crew and cameras, they were asked to sign a waiver.

William's younger brother Dillan said, "They told me just act like the camera is not there."

And that's exactly what the brothers did. "I acted like my little brother was chasing me," William said.

When the crew is not filming on the beach they can be spotted in St. Martin. Neighbors say the cast arrived a few weeks ago.

"They came in one by one. And it was kind of like a little excitement because they go up to the top of the driveway, and they would drop off their suitcase, and there's a big huge pool in the back, and they would hoot and holler," Terri Mason said.

Other than that, the neighbors say the production has been quiet.

"They have been very respectful," Mason said. "We don't hear anything from them."

"We thought maybe it would be loud music. There is no loud music, nothing loud down there. They keep it quiet," Betty Dugan said. "It's all under control and there is security at the gate, so no one can come in."

The only thing those who live nearby have noticed is lots of lights and a bit more traffic in their otherwise peaceful neighborhood.

"They are going slow. They don't come flying through, but they don't bother us at all," Dugan said.

But the cast did spark their curiosity.

"We looked on the computer to see what it was," Mason said. "It's just a bunch of kids having a good time, that's about it. They just want to have a good time in St. Martin."

The production crews wouldn't talk to WLOX News, but neighbors said the crews told them they will be filming in South Mississippi until August.
