Proposed filming laws a reality check
in the US state of New Jersey wants towns to have a say in the filming of reality TV shows within their boundaries. Republican Ronald Dancer has introduced legislation for a Snookiville Law. The law would let towns impose conditions including requiring TV crews to pay for additional police officers to assure public safety during filming. Dancer named the bill after Jersey Shore cast member Nicole ‘‘Snooki’’ Polizzi, whose show recently ended its run in Seaside Heights. The MTV show’s cast members were involved in scuffles and drunken public displays.
