MTV Cancels ‘Buckwild’

    FILE - This Jan. 2, 2013 file photo shows Shain Gandee, from MTV's "Buckwild" reality series in New York. Gandee was found dead Monday, April 1,  in a sport utility vehicle in a ditch along with his uncle and a third, unidentified person, authorities said. Gandee died doing what made him famous: careening through huge mudholes in his SUV, taking chances most others won’t, living free and reckless in front of reality-show TV cameras. His death further blurs the line between entertainment and real life in an age where fame is easier than ever to attain. (Photo by Amy Sussman/Invision/AP, file)

    MTV has canceled the reality show Buckwild, TMZ reported on Tuesday. The move comes just eight days after star Shain Gandee’s death from carbon monoxide poisoning. The show had been in the middle of production for its second season. Gandee’s death was not the only issue with the show—two cast members have been arrested, Salwa Amin for drug possession and Michael Burford for DUI. The show followed the lives of late teens and early-20-somethings in rural West Virginia. The four episodes of the second season that were taped will not air; instead MTV reportedly will air a special it taped two months ago.
