Former Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino will headline a new reality series at TVGN. The cable network has ordered The Sorrentinos, an eight-episode half-hour docu-comedy series featuring Sorrentino and his family—Mike (youngest brother), Linda (mother), Marc (middle brother), Melissa (sister) and Frank (older brother). Production starts this week in New Jersey. “The reality of the situation is… for the first time, fans and the general public, will be able to see and, well, meet Michael Sorrentino,” said The Situation. “This next chapter of my life is about sobriety and family, and I’m stoked to take people on this journey with us.” The Sorrentinos is executive produced by Julie and Seth Jarrett of Jarrett Creative (Boston’s Finest). Sorrentino is the latest Jersey Shore star to get their own series. Nicole Polizzi, Jennifer Farley and Paul DelVecchio headlined Jersey Shore spinoffs for MTV, Snooki & JWoww and The Pauly D Project.
