Gossip Girl Creator Remakes SciFi Series Misfits For The States!

Filed under: TV NewsGossip Girl

Misfits United States Josh Schwartz

Josh Schwartz is one busy man! While the upper east siders are busy bashing Lonely Boy, their creator has been working on a new series to storm the states.

Born in the UK, Misfits is about of group of kids doing community service in London when all of a sudden an electrical storm hits them. They survive, but with….dum dum dummmm….super powers! KA-PLOW!

And even though the US remake of Skins didn't do so well, tv minds are thinking Misfits has a way better chance.

Yeah, we'll give it a shot. We love science fiction!

R.I.P. The Hard Times Of RJ Berger!

Filed under: TV NewsMTV

Tough break!

The first of MTV's original, scripted series - The Hard Times of RJ Berger - has been canceled after two seasons!

Although debuting in seasons one and two to high numbers, the series, which focused on a well-endowed high school student, lost a huge amount of viewership steadily until dropping below one million by its season finale in May.

But hey! At least you got the network to stop airing so much crap reality!

And you also lasted longer than the abysmal Skins!

That's something! Ha!

Oh Well! MTV Cancels Skins!

Filed under: TV NewsMTV

mtv-skins-cancelation.jpg

Can't say we didn't see this coming, but we know there are more than a few of you out there who will be somewhat disappointed.

MTV just announced that they are canceling their adaptation of the British show Skins after only one season. The show had a rocky start, plagued by low ratings, bashings from parental groups and advertisers quickly pulling their ads because of its racy content. Still, MTV stands by their decision to air the show and released this statement on its cancellation:

"Skins is a global television phenomenon that, unfortunately, didn’t connect with a US audience as much as we had hoped. We admire the work that the series’ creator Bryan Elsley did in adapting the show for MTV, and appreciate the core audience that embraced it."

Whomp, whomp!

If you are one of those kids in the show's "core audience" and you haven't already, fill the void by watching the U.K. series. It is masterfully written and we think by watching it you'll have a better appreciation for what the U.S. show had to live up to!

Creator Of Skins Quits! What Will Happen To The Series?

Filed under: TV NewsSad Sad

Aw man! It will be a shame to see him go!

The future of the smash UK series Skins has gone into jeapordy now that it's been announced that series creator Jamie Brittain has called it quits, with a spokesman for the network Channel 4 revealing:

"Jamie has decided after five hit series to move on to write new projects and we wish him well. Skins is written by a team of young writers who are hard at work on the new series which is currently in pre-production."

And Brittain himself elaborates:

"I've just said everything I wanted to say. It's time for new writers to come forward and portray their truth about teenagers. I'm really sad to leave, but I'm confident that the writing and production team I've left behind will do an awesome job."

With him gone, as well as his co-cretor Bryan Elsley having left to work on the American remake, current assistant producer Toby Welch and script producer Neil Ducan have taken over running the next season, but if ratings don't improve, that could be the last!

We certainly hope not! Here's hoping that the new writers can breathe some fresh air into the series, and it will leave to see another generation of disillusioned teens!

What do U think?? Has Skins passed its prime?
