Original SC

We could do a million stories on the beauty of this state. From the rolling mountains of the Upstate to the beautiful seas of the Lowcountry. Our state is truly unique, but what really makes South Carolina sweet is its amazing people. The people are what make South Carolina original. 

Original SC is a series featuring stories of everyday South Carolinians living, working and experiencing all that the Palmetto State has to offer. The series is a part of PBS Digital Studios.
