Pauly D is going solo!
Jersey Shore‘s popular guido has locked in his own spinoff series, according to a statement from MTV.
“At the heart of Jersey Shore is the unique and genuine cast and Pauly D. truly embodies both qualities,” Chris Linn, Executive Vice President of Programming and Head of Production for MTV, told UsMagazine.com in a statement.
Pauly beat out other popular cast members like Snooki and The Situation in the race to solo shine. The announcement comes after the Pauly shot a pilot—revolving around his deejaying gig—in September with 495 Production, who also brought Shore to fruition.
“He’s distinguished himself onscreen as the fun-loving, well-coiffed and dependable guy you can’t help but want to hang out with,” said Linn. “We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore, and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that.”
The show’s title and concept have yet to announced.
