Why a New Jersey City Refuses to Allow Taping of a ‘Jersey Shore’ Spinoff

A New Jersey city has denied a filming request to tape a spinoff of MTV’s "Jersey Shore," explaining the decision on the grounds of "protecting public safety and quality of life concerns for Hoboken residents," according to a statement from its mayor, reports NJ.com.

According to the letter from Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer, "The city has denied a film permit for a spin-off of the ‘Jersey Shore’ to be filmed in public locations," the piece reports.

The show would have been a reality show following two TV celebrities — presumably Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley — day and night in Hoboken, the story says. The production company has the right to appeal the decision to the Hoboken City Council, the piece adds.
