No surprise there: MTV has greenlight a fourth season of its red-hot
reality hit Jersey Shore, which will be filmed in the spring in Italy.
From the network: "America’s most talked about housemates are leaving
the boardwalk behind for the piazzas of Italy. Poised to get their
G.T.L. on abroad, ready to drop in on Vinny’s family for a famous
Guadagnino dinner and excited to trade gorillas for Italian stallions,
this wacky and dysfunctional family is about to turn “the beautiful
country” upside down." Said Chris Linn, MTV's EVP of programming,
“While the stateside ‘Jersey Shore’ locales have become iconic for our
audience it’s really the constantly evolving dynamic amongst the cast
that keeps them coming back each season and Europe is a fresh spin on
a show that continues to reach new heights for us, The cast is headed
to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by. We can’t wait
to see what erupts as a result.”
