Residents hope 'Clash of the Ozarks' helps tourism

HARDY, Ark. (KAIT) - A new television show has shot an Arkansas town into the national spotlight.

The Discovery Channel debuted its newest show on Tuesday night: Clash of the Ozarks, based in Hardy. The show takes viewers into the lives of two frontier families who are at odds over a land dispute.

Many locals heard there was going to be a show, but had no idea what it would be about.

After it premiered on Tuesday, the residents told our affiliate, KAIT, and said they had one word for it: entertaining.

But, they want people to know that the reality of Hardy is a little different than this reality show.

Hardy residents said they have a lot more to offer visitors than what the show portrays, such as local music, handiwork, antiques and more.
