HAMPTON, N.H. (CBS) — Could Hampton Beach be the next Jersey Shore? A production company is currently casting for a reality show set on the popular summertime destination.

According to the casting notice posted on Craigslist, the show is looking for men and women ages 18 to 30 who summer on Hampton Beach.

“If you spend your summers walking the boardwalk with your friends and getting into trouble we want to hear from you!” the notice says.

According to Seacoast Online, the “major production company” is Authentic Entertainment and business owners on Hampton Beach are none too thrilled with the idea of reality television cameras taking up residence on the beach.

Depending on your reality television show tastes, the production company’s portfolio may provide a glimpse into what a Hampton Beach-based show would be like.

The website for L.A.-based Authentic Entertainment, is behind pop-culture gold such as “Toddlers & Tiaras” and “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” not to mention, “You’re Wearing That!?” and “The 750 Pound Man.”

The Craigslist posting may just be step one in a long-list of approvals needed before cameras arrive in Hampton, though. Town officials tell Seacoast Online they haven’t yet been approached for permission to film the show.
