I thoroughly apologise for the awful quality but THIS AD FOR HANDS OF TIME CAME ON TODAY and it looks like it will be out in April, in the UK at least. 25th March may have been a date for USA! If anyone hears differently let me know!!!!
As you know, Simon Fuller has bought the rights to make Shame, a English version of Skam. The English-language version will have new characters and actors but use the show’s format, and NRK will consult. And of course we are sceptical. American remakes of movies and shows can sometimes get really bad. It`s a shame. Hah.
Eva and Noora becoming friends.
Still, I haven`t given up the hope that Fuller`s Skam will be okay. I can understand that subtexts can be difficult for some to watch. And I can understand that quite a lot of people can be sceptical to watching a small Norwegian show. Norway is a small, rich and very white country, how is it possible to relate? However, they all don`t know what they miss, of course, and that`s why I think “Shame” can have a purpose. If “Shame” is just half as good as Skam, I am happy that a broader audience get to see it. I mean, the kids need quality shows, shows that can educate them and make them talk about important issues, without being patronizing. And they need shows that feel real, and that are something that they can relate to.
We all know Skam’s biggest strength is its authenticity. I hope “Shame” will have the same realistic feel, the close filming, the young unknown actors, looking like kids, and of course great acting and directing. And I really hope the show will have some of the same important themes, that matters for the kids. And then I don`t only think about homophobia, date rape or eating disorders, I think about those underlying themes, the issues, or the shame, that each main character needs to solve. And I hope it is done just as subtle as in Skam. Kids are smart, they don`t need to get everything in with a teaspoon.

So. I haven`t given up hope yet. Have you? Will this show translate? Please tell me what you think!
