As if the world could handle another Snooki, singer-model-actor Tyrese Gibson is producing a show called "K-Town," which TMZ dubbed "Like 'Jersey Shore', but with Asians." The pilot was shot in Los Angeles a week ago and has yet to be picked up by MTV, but if the drinking, muscles and attractiveness of the cast are factored in, it could be a big hit.

The cast is already set up on Twitter, where you can catch bon mots from former exotic dancer Scarlet Chan such as "I love the orgies scene in True Blood.. I wanna hook up with a Vampire so bad." Word.  Or try out Peter Le, who runs a softcore website and shames Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino with his rippling abdominals. In fact, Queerty takes up the burning question of Le's straightness, and dubs him "The Situasian."


The Examiner has a rundown of the cast and the early hype, and Best Week Ever remarks that "Guidoism knows no bounds." Blogger MTV Iggy focuses on Asian-American pop culture and has a wealth of information on the show.

The full, uncut cast reel was released to the public after TMZ leaked an earlier version, so check that out here:
