Here Come the Jersey Shore Spin-Offs
by: Bethany Larson
Last December, The Jersey Shore became a pop culture phenomenon. Not only do the juiced up and overly-tan Italian-American cast members have a hit show, they’ve made the rounds on the late night talk show circuit, re-enacted the Best Picture nominated films, and introduced a new dance craze.
Now other proud hyphenated American groups want to cash in on the of-the-moment fervor and as a result there have been several casting calls for shows that are using The Jersey Shore formula. We’ve already told you about the L.E.S. version, but after the jump we’ve rounded up other shows that are in the works and added one that we’d like to see.
The Asian-American Version
Found in the Help Wanted section of LA’s Craigslist, Tyrese Gibson’s HQ Pictures is looking for “beautiful Asian-Americans with lively, strong, and unique personalities between the ages of 18 to 30 with equally interesting life stories and perspectives to share.” But that’s not all folks. They’re also encouraging those who “are not Asian but are obsessed with Asian culture or people in some way” to apply as well. We think that part is way creepy.
