You know how much we love the hit parody web tv series LOST at da Jersey Shore (watch it on Mingle Media TV Network) but we were super stoked to hear Snooki share on Z100 New York’s interview with her and new cast member Deena Cortese (replacing Angelina in Season 3) that her FAVORITE series on the Interwebs is LOST at da Jersey Shore!
Not sure what HOT web series I’m referring too?? Here’s some background:
Snooki has over 1 million followers on Twitter now and at the 7:18 minute mark into the interview she tells her fans that she loves the show! So, if you’ve missed out – now’s the time to catch up – all season 1 of LOST at da Jersey Shore is here Click and watch it on Mingle Media TV Network.
Listen to the Z100 Interview here with Snooki and Deena!
If you’re new to the term “web series” (defined as a series of New Media episodes released on the Internet and part of an emerging medium called web TV) then you’ll appreciate this series of posts that we’ll be sharing here on MMTVN’s blog.
Our first spotlight is about the series created for the web called “LOST at da Jersey Shore.” As the convergence of TV and Movies (entertainment) move to the Internet, watching this web series will give you some perspective about the type of content being made for the web – waiting for you to find and enjoy.
Cast of ABC TV's LOST
Take the ABC TV show (dare I say, “hit”) with a cult-like following, LOST; so many of us spent Monday nights watching this series, season after season, watching re-runs, joining fan clubs, going online
The "LOST" cast at da Jersey Shore
to visit the different websites that engaged us and had us believing the Dharma Initiative was real and then posting and tweeting about the last few seasons with our online friends. Then it was over – and we were kinda left with a void, at least I was. It was not the ending I wanted.
Cast of MTV's Jersey Shore
Then you have the reality show scene with the Housewives of (Insert City Here), Iron Chef and the “Jersey Shore” building a fan base and being chatted about online. It’s no secret that the cast of the MTV show “Jersey Shore” is making headlines (seems like daily) with “The Situation’s” book and Snooki’s birthday party, sponsored by a condom manufacturer.
The "Jersey Shore" cast on LOST at da Jersey Shore
Who ever thought they’d be around for more than one season, let alone have a cast member join “Dancing with the Stars.” But they are and we are watching them, well, some of us are.
The common denominator is the web – we’re online watching TV and movies on our computers, we’re hooking up our PS3’s and other gaming consoles to the Internet and plugging in our newly acquired flat screen TV’s (remember we had to buy them or get a DTV box so we can get digital television as analog is no longer being broadcast) with wireless keyboards to surf the web, watch Netflix and Hulu.
The web gives everyone equal opportunity to create, produce and publish to their hearts desire. Consider this there are over 221 million people using the Internet in the US, add to that how many people are creating video and watching it:
Average time spent on YouTube per month in the US: 1:12:20
An average of 24 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute (which is equal to about 150K full length films over the course of a week)
YouTube streamed 5,799,702,000 videos in June 2010 in the US
Hulu streamed 598,812,000 videos in June 2010 in the US (about 1/10th of YouTube)
36% of YouTube viewers are between the ages of 18-34 and are 50% male
These numbers only continues to grow.
Watch the Series: LOST at da Jersey Shore
Recently, I had the pleasure to meet with Jen Kucsak and Richard Salazar from MovieKidz Productions and creators of the mash-up parody, “LOST at Da Jersey Shore” (which is now playing on Mingle Media TV).
Snooki Sporting "LOST on da Jersey Shore" Web Series Branded T-Shirt
This creative team has not only done their homework in creating episodes that blend the “cast” and stories of these two TV shows but the fans also find it very authentic in a parallel universe kind-of-way. The highest compliment comes when MTV, VH1 and Snooki, a cast member of the Jersey Shore, mentions the webseries on their sites/blogs. But what’s even more exciting is the latest where Snooki is sporting the “Lost on da Jersey Shore” branded T-shirt.

Okay… spoiler alert – not so much but you can see this full production Tuesday night on MTV without commercials!!

So what the heck is Kinect? Well, it’s controller free gaming…from Microsoft’s Xbox 360 gaming console (imagine saving money with no add-ons and accidentally tossing your controller into your flatscreen – not saying I have done this…). If you can’t visualize this… watch the promo video below.
Tonight, the Mingle Media crew will be attending the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) Kinect event… last night they taped the event which will play tomorrow commercial free for everyone who couldn’t be here (info below). But tonight, many of the Los Angeles social media influencers will be there along with E3 attendees for a LIVE encore of the new Kinect system from Microsoft Xbox 360 Experience and Cirque du Soleil performance!
We’ll be going to LA’s Galen Center for an exclusive 45-minute experience with Cirque du Soleil (they spent four months developing and producing this special show). Tonight we’ll get to see a cast of 76 dancers, musicians, acrobats, and clowns, accompanied by 25-foot-high projection screens which will be more than a football field in length, a gigantic 9-foot-tall elephant puppet with projection screens and a 40-foot-diameter steel structure that rotates on its axis and weighs as much as 25 VW Beetles. Crazy huh??
