Seaside Heights Fire Department To Be on NBC TV Pilot
Seaside Heights has been fighting hard to try to distance itself from the "Jersey Shore" reputation - a new TV show (not reality-based) is in the works, featuring the Seaside Heights Fire Department and the Tri-Boro First Aid Squad.
Donald Faison (Scrubs, Clueless) and Allison Tolman (Fargo (TV series)) are starring in "Emergence", which Deadline Hollywood describes as a "character-driven genre thriller that centers on a police chief who takes in a young child she finds near the site of a mysterious accident who has no memory of what has happened. The investigation draws her into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined, and the child’s identity is at the center of it all."
According to ShoreBeat, the show flimed locations on Island Beach State Park as background, and used equipment and staff from both squads. Tthe Seaside Heights borough council received a $20,000 payment from NBC.
There's no word on more filming or an air date, but we'll update you as soon as we know!
