MTV is looking to launch a series starring Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio, signing a series option deal with the Jersey Shore cast member. In September, Delvecchio starred in a pilot presentation produced by 495 Prods., the company behind Jersey Shore. The new project would explore Delvecchio’s “life away from the shore,” MTV’s EVP of programming and head of production Chris Linn said. “At the heart of Jersey Shore is the unique and genuine cast and Pauly D. truly embodies both qualities,” Linn said. “He’s distinguished himself onscreen as the fun-loving, well-coiffed and dependable guy you can’t help but want to hang out with.”
