Los Angeles, California (The Hollywood Times) 1/23/2018  “They all tell a story I want to hear and there’s not one episode that I haven’t thought was great.”  Darius Rucker said about the stories being featured on Reel South.

REEL SOUTH is a new anthology series that highlights the masterful, provocative Southern tradition of storytelling, exploring the alluring and complicated region and its diverse voices and points of view. Highlighted through half-hour and hour-long independent, documentary films about the American South, one of the most unique corners of America.



The Hollywood Times sent a couple of questions to Darius Rucker:


THT: What story caught your interest and why?

Darius: Tons of them. In season two it was Soul City and the one about the white dirt that really caught my attention. This season, the whole New Orleans story was amazing and can’t wait to rematch that one. The story of Gip’s place was a great one. They all tell a story I want to hear and there’s not one episode that I haven’t thought was great.


THT: Might you write a song about some of the stories that were featured on Reel South?

Darius: I can’t say I wouldn’t.

THT: What’s your favorite Southern food?

Darius: Okra soup is by far my favorite Southern food.
