e4’s Skins Coming to BBC America

Watch A Skins Video Skins Complete Series 1 and 2

The hit UK teen drama Skins is making its (long awaited) US premiere on BBC America in August 2008. As you might remember, I wrote about Skins in May of 2007 and that post attracted quite a bit of attention right around the time series 2 debuted on e4. The complete first and second series of Skins are currently available on Region 2 (UK) DVD, series 3 is expected to begin airing in early 2009 with a completely new cast of characters. You can check out a video of some series 3 auditions over here.

Teenagers grab life by the balls in BBC AMERICA’s hot new comedy drama, Skins. Starring Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy, The Weather Man), and with a team of writers averaging the age of 22, the award-winning show follows the lives and loves of a group of shameless teenagers. A potent mix of humorous, heartbreaking and shocking stories unfold as the group get high, get drunk, get laid and get up for school, while pushing boundaries and managing their parents in ways only teenagers can.

Skins premieres Wednesday, August 13, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
