On Thursday, the cabler announced the pickup of two Jersey Shore spinoffs set to star the reality trainwreck show’s three breakout personalities.
“Nicole, Pauly D and Jenni have become household names as a result of their unique, sometimes outrageous and often hilarious personalities,” MTV programming vice president Chris Linn said of the pickup. “We’re excited to put the spotlight on their lives away from the shore as they pursue their individual passions, careers and relationships… Both series are fun, fresh ways for us to evolve what is an already successful brand for us.”
The Untitled Snooki and JWoww Project will follow the unlikely pals outside their Seaside Heights home, giving viewers a glimpse of “how they deal with life and love when the vacation is over,” per the press release.
Fans can also hit the road with the always mobile deejay in the Untitled Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio Project, which sheds light on the Jersey boy’s budding career in the music biz. And since Vinnie and The Situation won’t be around to lighten the mood, viewers will get to know the reality star’s best (meaning: actual) buds outside of the Shore.
Production on both 12-episode shows begins this summer with an eye toward premiering in 2012.
