The Rhode Island native closed a series option deal with MTV, after shooting a pilot for the network this past September.
"At the heart of Jersey Shore is the unique and genuine cast, and Pauly D truly embodies both qualities," MTV's executive vice president of programming Chris Linn says. "He's distinguished himself onscreen as the fun-loving, well-coiffed and dependable guy you can't help but want to hang out with."
Not only is Pauly D the first Jersey Shore kid to get a spin-off, he's been really busy off-camera too. His first single, "Beat Dat Beat" came out last year, he has a DJ residency in Las Vegas, and he will perform at Disney's Grad Nite 2011 at Magic Kingdom Park.
