Pauly D Scores Jersey Shore Spinoff

Dashing the hopes of many (or maybe just Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino), MTV has announced plans for a Jersey Shore spinoff starring none other than series stud Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio.

But why Pauly? What makes him the Shore thing worthy of his own show? According to MTV programming vice president Chris Linn, the series’ diehard fans made this particular offshoot possible.

“At the heart of Jersey Shore is the unique and genuine cast, and Pauly D truly embodies both qualities,” explains Linn. “He’s distinguished himself on screen as the fun-loving, well-coiffed and dependable guy you can’t help but want to hang out with. [Viewers] are curious about his life away from the shore, and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that.”

Footage for the yet-to-be-titled new series was shot back in September, and is said to feature the budding DJ in his natural element — you know, hanging with friends, partying and working hard on his career. So nothing at all like Jersey Shore.

There’s no word yet on whether any of Pauly’s Jersey pals will pop-up on the new series, but here’s hoping that Vinny Guadagnino — the other half of the MTV hit’s breakout bromance — makes an appearance or three.

MTV’s Jersey Shore premieres its third season on Thursday, January 6, at 10/9c.

    This will be the best show on MTV. I would much rather watch Pauly then husband-beating Teen Mom’s. Good for him!
