TVGN debuting “The Sorrentinos”
TV Guide Network (TVGN) will debut the new reality series The Sorrentinos Tuesday, July 15 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT. The eight 30-minute episodes will follow the Sorrentino family—Mike (youngest brother), Linda (mother), Marc (middle brother), Melissa (sister) and Frank (older brother) as they embark on life after reality in their hometown of Howell, New Jersey.
The show spotlights one of world’s biggest reality TV stars in the aftermath of fame and scrutiny. Mike is sober, finished with Jersey Shore, taking a serious stab at an acting career and also looking to set the record straight once and for all about who he really is. The stakes are high. Not many get a second chance for a first impression and to add to the mix, Mike’s loving but quirky family are along for the ride.
The series will follow the entire family who are in the midst of major life changes. Melissa, Mike’s sister and the glue that holds the family together, is engaged and preparing for a wedding. She also is tasked with helping her mom, fondly referred to as “Peaches,” find a man worthy of her time as Melissa helps her traverse the scary world of dating. Middle brother Marc is pursuing his passion of music trying to make it to the top as DJ and at the same time, making a career for himself with the families tanning business which he runs. While Frank, the eldest, is revisiting acting, something he loved and had success at as a child.
