SKAM - Facebook Watch Orders U.S. Version of Norwegian Teen Hit



Back in December, Simon Fuller’s XIX Entertainment said it was making an English-language version of hit Scandi teen drama Shame (Skam). Today at Mipcom, Facebook’s Head of Global Creative Strategy, Ricky Van Veen, said the company is teaming with Fuller to bring the series to its newly-launched Facebook Watch.

The show, which debuted on NRK platforms in 2015, uses narratives in real time with unknown actors and scripts that are geared to a 16 year-old audience with a focus on teen issues. The show scored huge ratings among young and adult audiences in Scandinavia, growing its weekly audience from 24K to 1.262M (Norway has a total population of 5M) and outperformed many TV and streaming primetime hits in the territory. Episode length varies from 17-50 minutes.

Van Veen today said the teen drama is “built for social.” Original creator, Julie Andem, will be showrunner of the Facebook/Fuller version.
