KOREANS AND RUSSIANS IN AMERICA HAVE SNOOKI AND JERSEY SHORE TO THANK FOR THEIR NEW SERIES
Snooki can put boyfriend-hunting on the back burner for awhile – she’s got a new sweetheart – her Pomeranian puppy Gia. While “Jersey Shore’s” days are probably numbered, it’s amazing how the MTV show has inspired other reality series. Lifetime has ordered 12 episodes of “Brighton Beach” – it’s described as a Russian version of Jersey Shore, but it focuses on several families and multiple generations. “K-Town” (see photo above) follows a group of young Korean Americans in LA’s Koreatown and they’re hoping the show will be picked up by a major network. No word yet on the “Persian Version.” We love these peeks into subcultures.
