Mike has commissioned to do eight 30-minute episodes on the TVGN channel. The series is labeled as a ‘docu-comedy,” and it will focus on him as he tries to establish his television career. It will also touch on his efforts on staying clean and sober. In 2012, Mike had an addiction to prescription drugs. To end his habit, he checked into a treatment center in Utah, called the Cirque Lodge on March 21, 2012. He stayed there until April 4, 2012.
Mike will star on the show, along with his family members: his mother Linda, his sister Melissa, and his brothers Frank and Marc. They are set to begin filming sometime this week in New Jersey where Mike was raised.
Brad Schwartz, president of TVGN entertainment said, "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.”
The former "Jersey Shore” star has been very busy the last couple of years doing guest appearances on talk shows and being a contestant on the eleventh season of “Dancing With the Stars.” He joined Comedy Central roast of Donald Trump. Mike published his autobiography, started a vitamin and clothing line, and hosted a workout DVD.
The premiere date for "The Sorrentinos" has not been decided yet. Stay tuned for an update when it happens.
