MTV wants more of The Situation
With "Jersey Shore" standing as MTV's top-rated series ever -- contemplate that, if you will -- it's no surprise that the network wants to be more involved with the show's icky stars. The latest to get their own development pact is Mike Sorrentino, far better known as The Situation.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Situation has signed a deal for a pilot presentation to be filmed later this year. What will the project be about? Other than The Situation? We have no idea.
MTV has already ordered a pair of "Jersey Shore" spinoffs to series, one focusing on Snooki (or "Nicole Polizzi," if you prefer) and JWoww ("Jenni Farley," we suppose) and the other toplined by DJ Pauly D ("Paul Delvecchio" to squares).
Don't worry, "Jersey Shore" fans. MTV may be spreading the brand thin, but none of this will impact the future of the mothership.
