In case you were still wondering what the latest Boston-based reality show will look like – now you know.

VH1′s newest show “Wicked Single” debuts on St. Patrick’s Day. The promo for the “reality” show was recently posted on YouTube.

“Boston is a city of f—— champions,” says one of the characters in the promo as a softer version of Dropkick Murphys “I’m Shipping Up To Boston” plays in the background

“I can’t wait for 4:59 on the dot to hit so I can run out the door, punch out and go out and have a good time,” says another character as the group lives it up inside a bar.

The show follows six twenty- and thirty-somethings who “display impressive bravery when it comes to drunk dancing in public and wearing heels on cobblestone streets.”

And yes, it seems like it is following the “Jersey Shore” motif, which some people predicted and feared when news broke that Boston was becoming a hub for reality television filming.

“Just like American treasures of New Jersey and Staten Island previously depicted on the small screen, Boston is a unique gem deserving of the love and attention of television cameras,” VH1 wrote on its website about the show.
