The Shire – The Australian Version of Jersey Shore Or The Only Way Is Essex

The Australian made semi-scripted reality TV show The Shire (yes set in the enclave of the Sutherland Shire in Sydney), promo has been leaked online, and it looks like it is going to be a bit like Jersey Shore.

Media Spy reports the promo which was part of Network Ten’s showreel was first uploaded on Facebook and then YouTube has now been pulled down as the network has claimed copyright on it.

However Media Spy states the show has been made by the same producers of the successful UK production The Only Way Is Essex.

If it is like either of those shows we can expect excessive drinking, vacuous conversation, and unsatisfactory hook ups. Oh and lots of lycra.

TEN has been spruiking the show as the “reality event of 2012″ that will “take social media to the next level”.

The Shire will be seen on Network Ten later this year.

The Only Way Is Essex new season starts on Lifestyle You on March 26.

So this is Ten’s replacement for The Renovators is it?

OH NO
These Shiries do not need encouragement to behave the way I do – trust me – I’ve been down to Cronulla on a Friday night.

I’m shocked and scared…

But I’ll watch anyway.

Let’s hope they cover the angle of the fit, healthy and motivated people that live in the Shire! Have they walked along the Esplanade at Cronulla on any day to see all the superfit friendly people exercising by the sea?
