MTV’s Jersey Shore cast members Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Paul ‘DJ Pauly D’ Delvecchio and Jenni ‘Jwoww’ Farley are getting their own reality projects, set to air in 2012.

Produced by SallyAnn Salsano of 495 Productions (Jersey Shore), the two untitled reality projects will begin production later this year.

The untitled Nicole “Snooki” Polozzi and Jenni “Jwoww” Farley project will follow the girls’ friendship outside of the Jersey shore area, in a 12-episode series.  The 12-episode untitled Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio project, meanwhile, follows Delvecchio’s life on the road as an in-demand DJ, with his Rhode Island best friends by his side.

Chris Linn, MTV’s exec VP of programming and head of production, said: “We’re excited to put the spotlight on their lives away from the shore as they pursue their individual passions, careers and relationships. Both series are fun, fresh ways for us to evolve what is an already successful brand for us.”

David Janollari, MTV’s head of programming, added: “As we continue to reinforce our position as the entertainment destination for the Millennial generation, these two shows fit perfectly into that overall strategy.”
