The franchise that began with Jersey Shore in the U.S. is set to land on MTV Latin America with the Mexico-based Acapulco Shore, slated to air this September.
The series will be filmed in and around the city of Acapulco, featuring staple franchise moments such as over-the-top arguments, undefined love triangles and outrageous antics. Brixton Films is producing the show, with Jose Viggiano, the senior director of production for Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Latin America, exec producing.
“Drama, friendship and partying—the hallmarks of the MTV franchise are all encapsulated in Acapulco Shore,” said Maria Iregui, the brand manager of MTV Latin America. “We’re confident our Latin take on the format will entertain and intrigue MTV viewers in the same way as its predecessors all over the world.”
“We’re immensely proud to announce Acapulco as the production hub of the first Mexican version of the Shores franchise,” said Eduardo Lebrija, the country manager of Viacom International in Mexico. “Acapulco’s energy, vibrancy and social scene, day and night, make it the perfect backdrop for the show.”
