Skam, the Norwegian teen drama that has taken the internet by storm, will be getting an American remake. Skam is a Norwegian teen drama television series about the daily life of teenagers at the Hartvig Nissen School, a gymnasium in the wealthy borough of Frogner in West End Oslo.

Facebook is releasing the American remake of the TV series. “When I first heard about Skam, it felt like I was seeing the future of storytelling,” Facebook’s Global Content Chief Van Veen said (via Variety). “We’re incredibly enthusiastic about bringing it to global audiences on Facebook Watch.”
