Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino has landed a new reality show.
The former 'Jersey Shore' star will be joined by members of his family in 'The Sorrentinos', an eight-episode programme commissioned by TVGN, formerly the TV Guide Network, and is described as a ''docu-comedy''.
The show will feature Mike, his mother Linda and siblings Melissa, Frank and Marc and the reality star - who checked into rehab to be treated for an addiction to prescription drugs in 2012 - says it will focus mainly on his efforts to establish an ongoing TV career, as well as his attempts to stay clean.
Mike said: ''The reality of the situation is ... for the first time, fans and the general public, will be able to see and, well, meet Michael Sorrentino.
''This next chapter of my life is about sobriety and family, and I'm stoked to take people on this journey with us.''
Brad Schwartz, president of entertainment for TVGN, told Entertainment Weekly: ''We're excited to take viewers, who met Mike in a very different time and place of his life, and bring them along for this ride with 'The Sorrentinos'.
''Family is everything and it's something people universally come back to no matter who you are and what you do. Fame just makes the stakes higher and more public.''
Filming is scheduled to begin in New Jersey this week, though no air date has been set yet.
