It’s the latest case of U.K. television poaching. “Skins” is a British series that’s reached cult status for taking amateur teenage actors and throwing them into controversial plot lines involving sex, drugs, dysfunctional families, and more sex and drugs. Now, MTV is making its own version of the series. Apparently, it’s pretty much a shot-by-shot remake of the original pilot. It doesn’t premiere until January, but here is the trailer. And find a second after the jump. [Hollywood.com]
Will you be setting your DVR to watch “Skins”? Do you want MTV’s version to stay faithful to the original or veer off into its own territory? Maybe a “Teen Mom” could make a cameo.
