“Tales of the Jersey Shore” Needs Funding for Season 2

A second season of the television show “Tales of the Jersey Shore” on NJTV/PBSmight not air unless $60,000 can be raised during a 30 day Kickstarter campaign launching Monday, April 14.

Greg Russo- Associate Producer

The show’s Associate Producer, Gregory Russo, said Season 2 has a time slot, but not enough funding yet to air at the end of May/beginning of June. He noted the goal amount is a fraction of the cost it would take a traditional, high-definition show to produce a season.

“The show focuses on highlighting the historical relevance and family-friendly side of the shore, and it’s a way of more accurately reflecting New Jersey’s beautiful shore towns and cities in the spirit of the Jersey Shore verses its television counterparts that play on a lot of harmful stereotypes. We try to counteract that with some positive information about the Jersey Shore,” Russo said.

Russo said they’re offering nice incentives for those who make contributions, such as vintage replica postcards. “Our host (Emil Salvini) is a historian and author, so we have some of his books available as well as things like walk honor rolls and dedications in the end credits.”

To help the six-episode Season 2 air, you can go to or visit Gregory Russo also can be contacted directly by calling 732-784-7263.
