`Hollywood Hillbillies' features Georgia family, rivals Honey Boo Boo

Boy said redheads have souls

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Honey Boo Boo is getting some competition.

Another family from rural Georgia is coming to reality television, with "Hollywood Hillbillies" set to debut in January on ReelzChannel.

The show follows Michael Kittrell and his grandmother Delores Hughes, known as "Mema," as the family moves from Grayson, Ga., to Hollywood. Along for the ride are Kittrell's aunt, Dee Dee Peters, her boyfriend Paul Conlon, and Kittrell's uncle John Cox.

Kittrell is known as "The Angry Ginger" on YouTube, where a video he made to protest a "South Park" episode that claimed redheads have no soul gained attention.

Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, her mother and their rural Georgia family are the subjects of a hit TLC show that focuses on their lives in a small town.
