UK Hit TV Show Skins May Be Remade For A US Audience

Skins Goes International?


The Skins party may be temporarily over in the UK, but for the US (well, those who haven't been watching along with us via various internet devices) it may be just beginning!

Hannah Murray, who played spaced-out Cassie, is featured in US mag Nylon this month – talking about her plans to go to Cambridge to study English in the autumn. She also has a small role in new Colin Farrell movie In Bruges. Not bad going, eh?!

But the Skins news doesn't end there, a couple of US networks are looking at adapting the format for an American version of the show.

I'm not sure how it would translate, as I think the only American networks that would really manage to keep to the idea of Skins would be HBO or perhaps Showtime?

A main network like Fox probably would not be able to portray the riskier elements of the series and, more importantly, the attitude the show has to the content – not pandering or preaching to its audience. I look forward to more news on this though, it will be interesting to see how the story develops!
