News Roundup: 'Teen Mom' Gets a Spinoff, New 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' Clip and More

Maci BookoutMTV is preparing a spin-off of its popular reality series 'Teen Mom.' The network has reportedly already set its cast and done some location shooting.

This should come as no surprise since 'Teen Mom,' itself a spin-off of '16 and Pregnant,' averaged 2.8 million viewers. And the show -- chronicling the lives of teen mothers Amber, Maci [at right], Catelynn and Farrah -- attracted close to 6 million to its finale. '16 and Pregnant,' which returns for a new season Oct. 26, averaged 3 million viewers.

According to the New York Post, the series will be separate from both shows, but feature cast members from both.

"We're always exploring new production ideas, but can't confirm anything at this time," an MTV spokeswoman told the Post.

Sorry but Gwyneth's new movie is called "Country STRONG" not Country Song... It actually looks like a terrific flick. The lady can sing!
