Mike Sorrentino, better known as “The Situation,” was part of the ensemble cast behind one of reality television’s biggest hits, MTV’s Jersey Shore. When that series’ six-season run came to an end in 2012, several cast members scored their own series. Now it’s Mike’s turn, via this family-focused vehicle. Here, you’ll meet the Sorrentino clan, including brothers Marc and Frank (aka “The Man”), sister and “official ringleader” of the family Melissa, and mother Linda (aka “Peaches”), and watch as they help Mike with his own challenges, while also straddling the balance between fame and family.
