Asian 'Jersey Shore' Spoof is Really Happening
Model/actor Tyrese Gibson is producing a new reality show called 'K-Town', which is said to be a bit of a "spoof" of 'Jersey Shore', only with an Asian-American cast instead. The show is being filmed in L.A.'s Koreatown (aka K-Town).
They posted a casting call on Craigslist back in April:
Looking for interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to ‘Jersey Shore’…We need attractive Asian-Americans with lively, strong and unique personalities between the ages of 18 to 30 with equally interesting life stories and perspectives to share, especially individuals who know about and/or experienced the Koreatown life. If you are not Asian but are obsessed with Asian culture or people in some way, email us and please explain.You can have a look at the cast here - they even have a "situation". Oy.
I wonder what the 'Jersey Shore' gang will think? What if people are more amused by the "new" crew and lose interest in the Jersey clan? I'm curious to see if they make it "spoof-like" or if they are just using the general concept behind 'Jersey Shore'?
