Press Release: Cable network truTV has ordered 10 half-hour episodes of “Semi Pro,” a new formatted reality sitcom from “Jersey Shore” creator SallyAnn Salsano that shines a bright stadium light on the biggest, loudest, most hilarious characters in semi-pro football and brings this gridiron glory to cable.

“Semi Pro” follows New York and New Jersey’s most passionate semi-professional football teams as they try (and oh, man, do they try) to chase their dreams while juggling their grown-up responsibilities that get in the way of defeating their rivals. But not even jobs, aching bodies, or the women in their lives can keep these guys off the field. Whether they are suiting up for their 34th season or their rookie year, they put in their blood, sweat, and even some tears into every game.  On the field, it is all business, but as soon as the game ends (and maybe even a little before), the drinks and laughs are always flowing. It’s a brotherhood and sometimes a beautiful disaster.

The series showcases the following teams:

“Semi Pro” is executive produced by SallyAnn Salsano and Dave Hamilton for 495 Productions, along with Mike Gross who also serves as showrunner.
