Brighton Beach Reality Show

Wanted: A Russian-American Snooki For the Next Jersey Shore

Looks like the call for America's next sociological experiment has been answered! A casting call is out for Brighton Beach, a Jersey Shore-inspired reality show that will showcase vodka-swilling stereotypes of Russian-Americans.

While the show will draw cast members from all over the country, it will be taped in the Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn — the epicenter of Russian immigrants and their descendants in America. Following the sandy footprints of the Jersey Shore, the casting call asks for people who "identify" as Russian-Americans and are "the opposite of camera shy." Here's the rest.

Are you the Russian Snooki or The Situation? Are you a super-outgoing and fun-loving Russian-American that sometimes sneaks kalbaska, pel’meni, and vodka from the fridge? Can people hear the Euro/techno/Russian music blasting from your car before they see you pull up? . . . The cameras will roll as you do what you do best — eat, drink, and PARTY.

The creators of Brighton Beach assured Brooklyn blog Sheepshead Bites the show is no joke; however, they have not yet found a TV home for it. Though they are in talks with networks, an actual deal is contingent upon casting. So if you prefer sausage over ham after a night of drinking, this is your moment. "The cameras will roll as you do!"

I'm second generation Australian, but my family immigrated from Russia. And even I can tell them that you put vodka in the freezer, not the fridge, and not every Russian likes doof doof music. *eyeroll Talk about stereotypes. Away with it!

Okay-- I'm just going to say how stoked I am because I live in Brighton Beach... I'm not Russian, but to witness one of these fantastically train-wreckish shows first-hand is something I CANNOT WAIT to do!

I'm Russian too and if you thought that Italian-Americans were offended by Jersey Shore, wait until you see how offended Russian-Americans will be if this actually occurs.

I would be insulted if I were chosen for this show.

It was fun to laugh at the Guidos and Guidettes but watching my Russian cousins fist pump and jump on grenades just might make me sick.

Gross. These shows need to go away. Are they going to do Boston Irish next?
