Spring Break: Palm Beacher produces documentary about MTV in Florida

maxresdefault

In 1989, pop culture seemed to reign from the shores of Daytona Beach. College students flooded the coastal town and MTV took notice, bringing a previously unseen form of debauchery and excitement to the television screens of millions of Americans at home.

Most people growing up in the 1980s and early 1990s remember what Spring Break meant from what MTV was sending to their television screens — the bikinis, the drinking, the balcony jumping — but it was unclear through the telecasts what impact this was having on the city of Daytona Beach.

Now two decades later, the Showtime documentary, “Spring Broke,” which airs at 9:30 p.m. on Friday, goes behind the cameras of this cultural phenomenon and its impact on the Florida city.

Read more about the Palm Beacher who produced the documentary and the Delray Beach man featured in the documentary.
