Hoboken mayor Dawn Zimmer isn’t a fan of the popular MTV reality series Jersey Shore and for that reason she has denied Jim Bianco and 495 Production the necessary permits required to film Snooki and JWoww’s new Shore spinoff in the New Jersey city.
In the letter which denied the permit Zimmer noted:
“Based on protecting public safety and quality of life concerns for Hoboken residents, the city has denied a film permit for a spin-off of the ‘Jersey Shore’ to be filmed in public locations.”
The show was originally announced in April 2011 at which point staff from 495 Production began scouting out locations before settling on Hoboken.
In a statement teasing about the show MTV officials initially released this short synopsis:
“Always inseparable and ready to get the party started at the shore, viewers will get to see how they deal with life and love when the vacation is over in this 12-episode series” and “The locale may be different, but the friendship is sure to remain the same.”
Here’s the pull letter sent from Zimmer to 495 Production:
Do you think the mayor of Hoboken made the right decision to deny a Jersey Shore spin-off permit which in turn allows the city of Hoboken to protect it’s image which could easily have been replaced with the faces and antics of Snooki and JWoww?
