Although it doesn't premiere until January 17, Skins — the UK series famous for depicting sex, substance abuse and other teenage past times — already has a tough road ahead.
According to the New York Times, "MTV sought [the show] specifically for its boundary-pushing content while knowing that it could not break as many rules on American television."
The first season of the original, UK version of Skins included a character's visit to an eating disorder clinic; a character attempting suicide by drug overdose; homosexuality; manipulation; cheating; naked cell phone photos getting sent around; a female character being drugged and held for ransom and a character getting hit by a bus. In addition, she show has had bare asses, bare breasts, lots of sex scenes (and same-sex sex scenes) and one infamous baby-dropping scene. (There's a nice clip of some of the things you will probably not see in the US version here.)
