Jersey City Considered As Location For ‘Jersey Shore’ Spin-Off Show

If we buy into the truism that “any press is good press,” here’s some good news for Jersey City: the New York Post reports that MTV’s Jersey Shore is considering Jersey City as its next location.

City Spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill has confirmed that producers from MTV have expressed local interest in creating a spin-off that follows the adventures of cast members Snooki and J-Woww.

“Producers have been in contact with city officials regarding the film permitting process and discussions are ongoing about the potential for filming in Jersey City,” says Morrill.

“Everyone wants to live in Jersey City,” Morrill adds in explaining the interest. “Even Snooki and the cast of Jersey Shore know that we have everything – great restaurants, hotels, culture, diversity and proximity to New York City without New York City prices.”

“Those are many of the reasons people decide to move to Jersey City and why our city has become a choice of film producers who know our city is home to great locations, great amenities and that we are business- and film-friendly,” adds Morrill.

True as this may be, the city plans to keep a close eye on a cast that is continually delighted by the effects of binge drinking.

“If a film permit is issued to the Jersey Shore, the cast and all participants would be required to uphold the laws of the City of Jersey City and the State of New Jersey and respect our residents and neighborhoods,” says Morrill.
