"Vineyard" Reality TV Show Starts Production May 5, Source Says

The Black Dog Tavern and retail shop in Vineyard Haven will be the center of the action for reality TV show "The Vineyard" in May and June, according to an film and television industry insider with Island roots.

Production starts May 5 on the much-discussed reality TV show says a longtime Los Angeles television and film industry insider who has spent many summers on Martha's Vineyard.

Texting late Wednesday night, the retired Hollywood producer and editor wrote that the show is "shooting from May 5-June 25 in Vineyard Haven ... Story is based around The Black Dog store and restaurant." 

News that the ABC Family channel had greenlighted a Martha's Vineyard-based reality show caused a storm of comment on MV Patch and social media last month, with one commenter calling it "the worst idea ever."

According to ABC Family,

The Vineyard premieres Wednesday, July 24 at 9/8c! This docu-soap follows a handful of 20-somethings on Martha’s Vineyard for the summer. Tight quarters, new friends and new rivals all living, working, and playing together, make this picturesque playground perfect for mischief and romance!

Let's see, there will be a Todd, Lance, Buff, Muffy, April. If I was the producer I would have pitted the Nantucket rich kids against the MV rich kids. At the end of the season have s sail off for the TRUST FUND CUP. Losers have to spend a week with poor folks.
