About American SKAM:

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.”

“From the first moment I heard about it I thought about Facebook as my partner,” Simon Fuller, the creator of American Idol, said following the big announcement. “Facebook Watch, with its inherently social components and passionate community of fans that surround it, is the absolute perfect partner for Skam.”
