'Brighton Beach' reality series is a go for Lifetime

Lifetime really is working on a reality show about Russian-American Brooklyn neighborhood Brighton Beach, a source at the show has confirmed to EW.com. It’s coming to your TV sometime next year — or just as soon as Marlon Wayans and Jared Leto from Requiem for a Dream drop it off at your house! Old ladies like Ellen Burstyn in that movie are clutching their curls and murmuring, I’m gonna be on television!

Unlike MTV’s Jersey Shore, Brighton Beach will feature a multi-generational cast in order to appeal to a Lifetime-y demographic. The show will follow several families and center around a popular nightclub.

I’m down for this series — Brighton Beach is fascinating (particularly its grocery stores, which are brimming with hidden gems), and I wanted the dance party scene in the Brighton Beach episode of Bored to Death (“The Case of the Lonely White Dove”) to last a few more hundred vodka shots. What about you?

    I wonder how much they’ll show in the “a– to a–” episode.

    This should prove to be interesting! I was around when they were filming Bri.Bch. Memoirs on the block I lived(Bri.4th st)and my cousin in the boys of second street park(which I grew up in)! But for some reason I believe that a whole bunch of people that were there before the Russians came to town will be left out!
