Looks like a certain "Jersey Shore" star has gotten himself into a whole new situation.
Following in the footsteps of housemates Snooki, JWoww and Pauly D, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is developing his own spinoff for MTV. The former "Dancing With the Stars" competitor will shoot a pilot for his solo show sometime later this year, a rep for the network tells CNN.
"I'm excited to continue my relationship with MTV, which has been home for me for the last couple of years," Sorrentino told industry publication Variety. "I'm really grateful for all the support from my fans. Hopefully, there will be plenty more situations in the future."
As CNN previously reported, fellow "Jersey Shore" stars Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley will star in a show that chronicles their adventures together away from the "Shore," while Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio's series will track his career as a successful deejay.
Would you watch the Situation in a spinoff?
