The producers of a planned reality TV series about a group of gay, lesbian, bisexual and trangendered people living together at a Jersey Shore beach house will be at Resorts Casino Hotel Friday for a casting call.

While the concept of the as-yet unnamed show bears a similarity to it, the show's creators are stressing they are not planning a gay version of "Jersey Shore."

"We envision it to be a very sophisticated show, with each character having a unique and fresh take on the world, with the fact that they are LGBT providing the community and context," said director Kim Friedman, who has helmed episodes of such series as "Beverly Hills 90210," "Star Trek Voyager" and L.A. Law."

Those selected at Friday's auditions will film a pilot sometime this spring. If it is sold to a network, production of the series will begin this summer at a to-be-determined location.

The casting begins at 4 p.m. at Boogie Nights on Resorts' dining level. For more info, go to www.resortsac.comwww.twitter.com/resortscasino or www.facebook.com/resortscasino.
