SKAM to be remade for English audiences….

And in we should all leave well enough alone news…. Simon Fuller (one of the Simon’s behind American Idol) will be producing an English version of the Norwegian Teen Drama Skam.

Seriously? We couldn’t just leave this one? Enjoy something well made that didn’t set out to be commercial but got great success because of it’s authenticity? We got to do a money grab for this one too? Come on English speaking world, we can all read subtitles it’s not that hard.

Skam or Shame in English, is a Norwegian teen drama, by predominately unknown actors with an authentic real time narrative.

Like Skins and the Inbetweeners before it I predict a sleeker version with the sexier story lines cherry picked into what producers believe are the storylines that teens want too see.
