Are Asian-Americans Headed To “Jersey Shore”?
A casting call was recently posted to Craigslist in L.A. asking for “interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-Americans to cast in a reality show similar to ‘Jersey Shore,’ ‘The Real World,’ ‘The Hills,’ etc.” An unidentified production company and network are looking to capitalize off the unexpected success of “Jersey Shore,” which debuted last year. This new show will no doubt have bigger-than-life personalities with weird nicknames and unique grooming habits. L.A.’s Koreatown might be the locale for this reality show since the production company is especially interested in individuals who know about or have experienced that neighborhood. This show could be the third “Jersey Shore”-like spinoff in the works — there’s “Brighton Beach,” which focuses on Russian-Americans, and “Sunset Daze,” starring nursing home residents. [NY Post]
