The question is...will it be the next The Office (success!) or the next Coupling (failure) in terms of a British-to-US show adaptation.
Skins follows a group of teenagers - and uniquely casts unknown actors and employs young, inexperienced writers. It is also known for its nudity, language, and drug use - most of which probably cannot be shown on MTV.
However, an MTV VP of Series Development promises that they will "preserve the authenticity of the British version" and will "not water it down too much", though it is true that "MTV's version will not show nudity and will not use a certain few four-letter words."
So what say you? Are you excited for the US version of Skins or is this a disaster in the making?
