Viacom’s youth-focused network MTV has partnered with Jersey Shore creator SallyAnn Salsano and her 495 Productions to revive the renowned unscripted juggernaut franchise. 

MTV Floribama Shore will be set in the Florida Panhandle along the beach that stretches to Alabama and will capture eight young adults navigating life, relationships and independence while partying the summer away in Panama City Beach. 

Making up the cast are Jeremiah Buoni, 22; Codi Butts, 25; Kortni Gilson, 21; Aimee Hall, 24; Kirk Medas, 25; Nilsa Prowant, 23; Candace Rice, 24; and Gus Smyrnios, 22.

The eight-episode series is slated to premiere across MTV on Nov. 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. It will begin airing internationally this December.

The Jersey Shore franchise has spun off a number of global successes for MTV, including Geordie Shore in the UK, Gandia Shore in Spain, Warsaw Shore in Poland, Acapulco Shore in Mexico and Super Shore.

Executive producers for Floribama Shore are 495 Productions’ Salsano and Drew Tappon, and MTV’s Nina L. Diaz and Jackie French.

The series stems from Salsano’s recently inked exclusive partnership with American media conglomerate Viacom, her seventh overall deal with the media company. In addition to MTV’s Jersey Shore, her FremantleMedia-owned 495 Productions has developed VH1′s Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner, MTV’s Snooki & JWOWW, Spike’s Tattoo Nightmares and Tattoo Nightmares Miami, and CMT’s Party Down South.
