Tonight is the series premiere of Pauly D Project on MTV at 10:30/9:30c. The show will give viewers an inside look at Pauly D’s life away from Seaside Heights, NJ, as cameras document his transition from world-famous housemate to world-class DJ with his best friends from his home state of Rhode Island along for the ride. While the 12-episode series retains the trademark humor, swagger and distinctive haircut that fans associate with Pauly D from Jersey Shore, it’s not always all girls, good times, and good music. Aiming to become one of the world’s most successful and recognized names in the music industry, viewers will get to see Pauly D chase his dream as he signs a recording contract with rap icon 50 Cent’s G-Note Records, accompanies pop icon Britney Spears on her international “Femme Fatale” tour and tries to balance it all with the array of photo shoots, public appearances, and media interviews that are now a part of his everyday life. America knows Pauly D has seven friends for life from the Shore house, but what they don’t know is that while his star has risen, he’s brought along his friends who were by his side back when he was a struggling DJ and not yet a part of TV’s #1 show. Set to take the music world by storm, the stakes for Pauly D have never been higher. Fame isn’t easy — but with his boys for life along for the ride to the top with him, it is sure to be a lot more fun.

Tonight is the series premiere of Magic City on Starz at 11/10c. Miami Beach, 1959. As Ike Evans rings in the New Year at his luxurious Miramar Playa Hotel, Havana falls to Castro’s rebels. It’s a turbulent time in Miami, but it’s THE place to be. The Kennedys, the mob and the CIA all hold court here. And Ike, he’s the star of his hotel. But everything comes at a price. To finance his dream, he sold his soul to mob boss Ben “The Butcher” Diamond. Ike’s wife Vera, a former showgirl, and his three kids think he’s an honorable man, but he can’t break his pact with the devil. His life is a façade. In fact, nothing at the Miramar Playa is what it seems. By day, it’s diving clowns and cha-cha lessons. By night, escorts have secret liaisons with husbands in the family cabanas, while Miami’s seedier residents and the law drift together to hear legendary singers, musicians and comics. As Ike’s world threatens to implode, he fights for his family, and the Miramar Playa, in Magic City. The show stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Supernatural, Grey’s Anatomy), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace, Max Payne), Danny Huston (The Kingdom, Children of Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Christian Cooke, Dominik Garcia Lorido, Elena Satine, Jessica Marais, Kelly Lynch (90210, Charlie’s Angels), Steven Strait, & Yul Vazquez.
