The Jersey Shore spin off you have all been waiting for is finally here. No, it’s not a loop of that clip of Snooki getting punched in the face from season one. It’s also not the long reported Snooki and Jwoww spinoff. It’s actually DJ Pauly D that is the first to get his own spinoff. Starting March 29, fans will be getting more of Pauly thanks to The Pauly D Project.
The Pauly D Project will chronicle DJ Pauly D DelVecchio’s life when he’s not in Seaside Heights or Italy with Snooki and the rest of the Jersey Shore gang. Pauly D is trying to make it as a big name DJ and this will follow his exploits along the way. We will get to watch him cut a recording contract with 50 Cent and he even tours as one of Britney Spears’ opening acts.
“It’ll be probably along the lines of, I used to be this DJ in Rhode Island, DJing two sets a week, hustling, promoting,” Pauly explained to MTV News back in January 2011. “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.
The show will also introduce us to Pauly’s original entourage. On this journey Pauly will have to separate from his “Shore” family, but the new show promises its own cast of colorful characters. There’s Pauly’s road manager from Rhode Island, Michael “Biggie” Morgan, and the DJ’s personal bodyguard and friend Gerard “Big Jerry” Gialanella.
MTV is hoping for success with this show and will be looking to move forward with other spinoffs if they find it.
