Will the Russian-Americans of Brooklyn give the Jersey Shore kids a little competition? The Lifetime network has just ordered 12 episodes of the Brighton Beach reality show, which was casting earlier this year. A call went out in February beckoning the Russian Snooki and super outgoing types that love to blast Euro/Techno/Russian music.
The Hollywood Reporter says that the show will bring the chosen strangers to a house on Coney Island where episodes will focus "on the foibles unique to the Russian community."
The producer of the show has promised, "There will be plenty of vodka, techno music and guys wearing Adidas pants, leather jackets and gold chains, and driving souped-up cars. There will also be a lot of hot, decked-out Russian girls."
