MTV confirmed Thursday that it has officially greenlighted two "Jersey Shore" spin-offs, ordering 12 episodes of both a Pauly D show and a Snooki and JWoww spin-off.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the untitled projects, which are set to air in 2012, will highlight the lives of the three stars outside of the Shore house.

Pauly D’s spin-off will follow the DJ as he jet-sets around the globe with his Rhode Island buddies, building his career as “one of the country’s most in-demand DJs.”

As for the leading ladies of the Shore, Snooki and JWoww’s project will focus on the pair’s close friendship as they navigate life and relationships outside of the vacation home. 

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, "Jersey Shore" executive producer and co-creator SallyAnn Salsano compared the banter between Pauly D and his friends with The Hangover, and called Snooki and JWoww’s interaction a “Laverne & Shirley kind of thing.” Salsano will executive produce both spin-offs.
