Asian-Americans Sought Out for 'Jersey Shore'-Like Show NY Post
Casting notices on Craigslist are looking to create a new "Jersey Shore" type show, but with Asian-Americans, the New York Post reports.
An Asian-American version of the show would join two other knockoffs of the format that are currently being cast, one with Russian-Americans and another with senior citizens.
The ad reads: "Looking for interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to 'Jersey Shore,' 'Real World,' 'The Hills,' etc."
The notice specified that respondents should be between 18-30 years of age with interesting life experiences from living in the Koreatown area. The notice added that non-Asians who are interested in Asian culture were also welcome to audition.
The production company or network behind the notice wasn't available.
