MTV Accused of Stealing Idea for 'Jersey Shore'
Bosses at MTV are facing possible legal action from a writer who claims network executives copied his idea for hit reality show "Jersey Shore". Christopher Gambale wrote an outline for a show, entitled "Guidos: A Reality Series", in 2006 and registered the idea with the Writer's Guild of America.
Gambale's show, which he later allegedly pitched to MTV, focused on a "sad, pathetic excuse for a male... usually native to the New York/New Jersey tristate area" who enjoys "nightclubbing", according to the New York Daily News.
And he has now threatened to sue MTV bosses over the alleged similarities with Jersey Shore - Gambale's lawyers have given network bosses until December 10 to respond to their claims before filing suit.
