Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino, who became a household name on Jersey Shore, is returning to his reality TV roots, thanks to the TVGN – the TV Guide Network — who have agreed to produce The Sorrentinos.
The Sorrentinos will follow Mike, Linda (mother), Marc (middle brother), Melissa (sister) and Frank (older brother), showing their real lives…after reality. This is a whole new situation — pun intended — for Mike. On the Jersey Shore he was known for stirring the pot, partying for a living, crashing his head into a wall in Italy and eventually filming a season sober, after a stint in rehab. So will viewers appreciate or even like the new Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino? Famous for his bad behavior, TVGN is banking on the likability of his 'real' personality.

“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,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment for TVGN. “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.”
"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," remarked Mike. "This next chapter of my life is about sobriety and family, and I'm stoked to take people on this journey with us."
