ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (NBC) - "Jersey Shore" fans wishing there was a gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender "Situation" going on are about to get their wish.

Under the Boardwalk Productions is holding an open casting call for the GLBT community for a new reality show pilot described as at "GLBT" Jersey Shore.

A source from the production company says the new show will be similar to the Jersey Shore but with a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender cast.

The pilot for Under the Boardwalk (the show's title for now) will be shot this spring and if the show is picked up then cast members will live in a beach house in Atlantic City, Ventnor or Margate for the summer.

"I think it will be fascinating," said producer Kim Friedman.

The tryout requires no line reading. The only thing the casting directors need is a videotaped interview to figure out whether you're the next Snooki, Paulie D or Situation.

The tryout will be held at Club In or Out in Hammonton, NJ.
