Jersey Shore Spin Off
February 10, 2012 by staff
Jersey Shore Spin Off, Jersey City tanning salons, prepare for some extra business: “Jersey Shore” stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley are headed to Mercer Street to film a spin-off to the hit MTV reality show.
City officials have approved permits for 495 Productions to film the as-yet untitled spin-off in and around Jersey City. Snooki and JWoww will reside in a former firehouse on Mercer Street.
Though Twitter was abuzz with city residents vowing to boycott any business that gives the show access, Mayor Jerramiah Healy said the pending shoot will be great publicity for Jersey City.
“Any time we can show the many assets our city has such as proximity to New York, affordable mass transit, historic and cultural sites, international dining and world-class hotels we will take that opportunity to market our city,” Healy said in a statement.
Movers were spotted yesterday schlepping furniture and other items in and out of the former firehouse.
City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill and Jersey City police spokesman Lt. Edgar Martinez stressed that Snooki and JWoww, whose drunken exploits were made famous in the five seasons of “Jersey Shore,” would not be permitted to break any laws.
“There is no special treatment for these individuals,” Martinez said.
According to the agreement between 495 Productions and the city, the film crew must hire three off-duty police officers and one off-duty supervisor. One will be stationed at the Mercer Street home at all times, while the other three will stay with the cast and crew.
Police Chief Tom Comey can revoke filming privileges at any time due to public safety concerns, according to the agreement. If on-duty cops are forced to address an incident during filming, the production company must pay for that response, Martinez said.
