US Reality series Jersey Shore will finally have its free to air premiere with a two-hour episode on 7mate next month.
The breakout show follows eight young adults – Vinny, The Situation, Snooki, Sammi, Ronnie, J-WOWW, Angelina and DJ Pauly D – as they move into a summer share house on the Jersey Shore.
In the US the show is now in its third season with a fourth to commence filming. It has made pop-culture stars of its cast of unknowns but attracted some criticism for its portrayals of Italian-American stereotypes as ‘Guidos.’
MTV is also launching a British counterpart, Geordie Shore.
7mate has also announced it will be adding American Pickers, Eastbound and Down, IRT: Deadliest Roads and Swamp People later this year.
Jersey Shore will begin Wednesday, May 11 at 8:30pm.
