A&E has picked up a Boston-based reality show that could be the Boston equivalent of Seaside Heights, N.J.’s hit MTV series "Jersey Shore," the New York Post reports. The series, to be based in South Boston, will be called "Southie Rules," the story reports.
The show will track a close-knit family that’s trying to resist the neighborhood’s gentrification, the story says. Camille and Walter are divorced, but still share a bed, while their home also includes their son Matty, who is trying to decide whether to marry the mother of his 9-month-old child. They also have a daughter, her husband and their 2-year-old child living with them.
The report adds: “Earlier this year, TLC greenlit ‘Southie Pride’ — from the producers of ‘Jersey Shore’ — which follows the friendships and family ties of five South Boston women. It’s due to premiere this fall.”
