Dozens In Open Casting Call For Gay Jersey Shore

The Associated Press reports:

Dozens of members of the lesbian, gay, bi and transgender community flocked to this tiny farming community Saturday night for an open casting call for a prospective reality show.

The show, currently dubbed “Under the Boardwalk,” plans to focus on a group of gay, lesbian, bi and transgender people living in a beach house in Atlantic City for a summer.

“We’re not looking to create a gay version of the ‘Jersey Shore’ or to find ‘the gay Snooki.’ And in no way will this be anything that has a negative effect on the LGBT community. We’re hoping for anything compelling, because you never know what’s going to walk through the door,” said Los Angeles resident Kate Siegel, the show’s creator and a straight 22-year-old English major at Princeton University.

“But if we do find ‘the gay Snooki,’ of course we’d be thrilled,” interjected her mother, co-producer and TV veteran Kim Friedman. “We want this to be a fun, crazy show. But these are people’s children. They could be your family or your neighbor’s family. We want to tell their stories.”
