TRAILER: MTV's New Soap, Remake of British SKINS

This winter, MTV will debut perhaps its most eagerly anticipated new series, SKINS, an adaptation of the hit British series. Premiering January 2011, SKINS is a realistic look at life as a teenager and its hardships (think sex, drugs, eating disorders, parent issues). MTV enlisted the original series’ father-and-son creators, Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain, to bring this provocative and controversial series to U.S. audiences.

Watch the first trailer below.


  1. UK Skins is a great show but it's a hyper realistic view of teen life. Very few teens have the kind of manic, drug and sex fueled existence of the teens in Skins.

    I'd encourage anyone interested in seeing a good soap to rent Skins from Netflix. It's quite daring and entertaining.

  2. UK Skins was so well-written, I just can't believe that a USA version will be able to hold a candle to it.
    I'm picturing teen-Jersey Shore.
    SoapFan78 is right, if you want to see a great show, rent the UK version.
