Set in the Florida Panhandle along the beach that stretches all the way to Alabama, "MTV Floribama Shore" is the story of eight young adults who come to spend the summer in the hottest beach town on the Gulf Coast, Panama City Beach, to party it up and put the real world on hold for just a little bit longer. This coming of age story captures the very real thrill and angst of being young and trying to figure out the future with a group of people you'll come to call family.
