MTV shuts down 'Bridge and Tunnel' reality series for being too 'Jersey'
Angelina Pivarnick isn't the only one MTV sent packing back to Staten Island lately. While MTV has found a hit in "Jersey Shore," it seems that the network doesn't believe that lightning will hit the same place twice for new Staten Island-based reality series, "Bridge and Tunnel."According to our sources, MTV has shut down production on the new reality show, because it was too similar to another situation on the network, "Jersey Shore." The show features a group of young people from New York's Staten Island trying to move on up to Manhattan. The network previously screened an excerpt of the show at Upfronts last year. At one point, the show was scheduled to premiere later this month on the network. Our sources tell us that the crew has been shooting for the past three months in New York before production was halted about two weeks ago. As of now, the series will probably never see the light of day. We're told that the network has no plans for the footage to go into editing.MTV declined to comment for this story.Would you have tuned in to watch "Bridge and Tunnel"?Follow Zap2it and TheRealJethro on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest TV, movie and celebrity news.Photo credit: MTV
