MTV to Air ‘Jersey Shore’ Reunion Special as a Pilot for a Series Revival

“Reunion Road Trip,” a reunion special and pilot on MTV for a proposed new series featuring the cast from 2009-12 docuseries “Jersey Shore,” has been confirmed as a go by Mike “The Situation” Torrentino MTV on “Entertainment Tonight” on Friday. The logline: Viewers will follow the lifelong friends as they come together to gossip about each other’s lives, what has been said about them in the press, the juiciest moments and stories from behind the scenes that we never saw, and most of all talk about the pop culture hit that has bonded them forever.

Who exactly will be returning from the original series is not confirmed yet, with the producers exploring both unscripted and scripted series casts as possibilities for future episodes, should the show move forward. Greg Lipstone, Simon Knight, Adam Greener, Emily Mayer and Lauren Stevens will be the executive producers.

Rumors that the stars of the MTV reality hit were getting back together surfaced earlier this month after sightings of the cast were reported to the “Asbury Park Press.” The speculation increased with the news that the company that produced Jersey Shore, Bright Road Productions, had applied for a permit to film in Asbury, New Jersey, under the title “Reunion Roadtrip.”
