One of the regulars from MTV's hit reality show "Jersey Shore" is returning to television with a new series. TheWrap.com reports that TV Guide Network has ordered the reality show "The Sorrentinos," featuring Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
The cable channel ordered eight half-hour episodes, with production set to start this week in New Jersey, the piece adds.
The show, billed as a “docu-comedy,” will feature The Situation’s family, including his mother, sister and brothers.
“We're excited to take viewers, who met Mike in a very different time and place of his life, and bring them along for this ride with ‘The Sorrentinos,'” said Brad Schwartz, entertainment president at the network.
