On Thursday (April 7), MTV announced that we will be seeing a lot more of Snooki, JWoww and Pauly D. The three “Jersey Shore” castmembers will be featured in two untitled reality projects set to debut on MTV in 2012.
“The ’Jersey Shore’ cast is at the center of the show’s ongoing success, and Nicole, Pauly D and Jenni have become household names as a result of their unique, sometimes outrageous and often hilarious personalities,” said Chris Linn, MTV executive vice president of programming and head of production.
The inseparable dynamic duo of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and best friend Jenni “JWoww” Farley will give viewers a look at what life, love and friendship is like away from Seaside Heights.
“It’s pretty much just the concept of me and Jenni being on our own without our roommates,” Snooki told MTV News recently.
The two best friends will be living in a yet-announced location, but it seems the girls planned to be roommates even if the cameras weren’t rolling.
“It was a concept before the show [was green-lit]. We legitimately just wanted to buy a house together,” JWoww revealed. “She wanted to get out of her dad’s, and I wanted to move out of the home that everyone could see on TV, so they were like, ’Let’s shoot it!’ ”
JWoww and Snooki will share the spotlight with fellow castmember DJ Pauly D. The cameras will follow him (and his blowout) as he continues to pursue his dream of becoming one of the most successful and recognized DJs in the music business.
“I used to be this DJ in Rhode Island, DJing two sets a week, hustling, promoting,” he explained to MTV News earlier this year, “and all of a sudden, I’m on this show, and now they’re sending private jets for me to DJ for these huge crowds, yet I’m still the same guy that was DJing for 200 people, just loving life.”
Both untitled series will be 12 episodes, and production begins later this year.
