Move over, guidos. The Russkies are coming!

A planned Russian-American reality show dubbed “Brighton Beach” aims to be a cross between “Jersey Shore” and “Anna Karenina.”

“We are big fans of ‘Jersey Shore’  but the Russian community has its own set of characters which we think could be even more interesting,” said co-creator Elina Miller, who is working find a network for the show.

“There will be plenty of vodka, techno music and guys wearing Adidas pants, leather jackets and gold chains, and driving souped-up cars,” she said. “There will also be a lot of hot, decked-out Russian girls.”

“We’re really proud of that identity,” the writer said. “But we would never want to portray this insular community in a way that isn’t positive. We’re used to everyone asking if we’re in the mafia and if we drink vodka and get chased by bears.”
