What viewers can expect on the MTV series, set to premiere next year.
MTV announced Thursday that Jersey Shore stars Snooki, JWoww and Pauly D will be featured on two spin-off shows next year.Before the announcement, Snooki and JWoww told MTV News what viewers can expect on their show. The two will be living in a yet-announced location, said Snooki. "It's pretty much just the concept of me and Jenni being on our own without our roommates," she explained. JWoww said the concept was developed before the show was green-lit. “We legitimately just wanted to buy a house together," she said. "She wanted to get out of her dad's, and I wanted to move out of the home that everyone could see on TV, so they were like, 'Let's shoot it!' " As for Pauly D, his show will track his journey of becoming a successful DJ in the music business. "I used to be this DJ in Rhode Island, DJing two sets a week, hustling, promoting," he told MTV News earlier this year, "and all of a sudden, I'm on this show, and now they're sending private jets for me to DJ for these huge crowds, yet I'm still the same guy that was DJing for 200 people, just loving life." Chris Linn, MTV's executive vice president of programming and head of production, told The Hollywood Reporter Thursday he doesn't think the shows will dilute the popular franchise. "I have to say, again, they feel very different from Jersey Shore and each of these cast members has so much more depth and different sides and layers to them than you see on Jersey Shore," he told THR. "I think it allows us to expand out from the base of Jersey Shore without taking away from what Jersey Shore is. They would continue to be involved in any potential future cycles of Jersey Shore. That’s really a different experience because they’re on vacation and it’s a group dynamic."
