It seems Jersey Shore’s Pauly D may not be the only one getting a spinoff series on MTV. Word is, JWoww and Snooki are shooting a pilot for their own show on Long Island this weekend.
This seems to be in the rumor phase right now as TMZ reports that Jersey Shore’s JWoww (Jenni Farley) and Snooki (Nicole Polizzi) are shooting a pilot for their own reality TV series on Long Island this weekend. TMZ notes that it’s interesting that MTV would require a pilot considering the high ratings of Jersey Shore, however perhaps the premise alone, which apparently involves the girls being themselves, wasn’t enough to sell MTV on the necessity of the spin-off.
If you watch Jersey Shore then you know that Snooki and JWoww have become close friends and are rarely at odds with one another. Given the drama on JS, that’s saying something, so a team-up for their own makes sense. And since JWoww is from Long Island, the setting does as well. Whether or not MTV decides to pick up the pilot remains to be seen but I can’t imagine MTV choosing not to continue to cash in on the JS ratings while there are still cast members willing to partake in public displays of drunken activity and dramatic social interactions.
I’ll probably watch this show if it actually comes to fruition. Please don’t judge me.
