FYI has ordered eight episodes of a new reality series starring “Jersey Shore” alum Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her husband Jionni Lavalle, the network announced Wednesday.
“Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip” will follow the couple, along with their family and close friends, as they undertake their first business venture of flipping a home together.
“Millennials have grown up with Nicole, and we’re excited to now partner with her and Jionni as they start their first business flipping homes together,” said Gena McCarthy, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development for FYI, in a statement. “With Nicole’s crafty and creative ideas and Jionni’s background as a contractor and builder, this series combines renovation, design and family comedy in a unique docu-series approach to the home makeover genre.”
“With spending so many summers growing up at the shore, and then finding love there with Jionni, we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to start our business together,” said Polizzi. “Jionni has always wanted to flip houses, and with my love for interior design and do-it-yourself crafts, this project is a dream come true. We are excited to bring our passions to television and can’t wait for our fans to see us on this new journey.”
