‘Jersey Shore’ Producers Looking For Persians

NEW YORK — The production company behind ‘The Jersey Shore‘ is looking for Persian-Americans.

495 Productions and Doron Ofir Casting have announced that they’re casting a “Persian version” of the MTV hit reality show about young Italian-Americans partying at the beach.

The casting call, which Gawker.com first reported, seeks applicants who are 21 or older, “appear younger than 30 and are outrageous, outspoken and a proud Persian-American.”

A spokesman for 495 Productions didn’t reply to questions about whether the show had any TV network deal.

‘The Jersey Shore’ is in production for a second season. Numerous attempts have been undertaken to mimic it, including a Russian-American version set in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach that doesn’t yet have distribution.
