“Shame” to American audiences
Simon Fuller partners with NRK to bring the teen show Shame to American audiences. Beta Film is the international partner of NRK Super and handles the world sales of the new web-format, which is offered as ready-made and as a format.
Shame, the ground breaking multi-platform drama for 16-year olds has become Scandinavia's TV hit of the year. Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment will produce it for American and English-speaking audience. Production is slated to start in 2017.
Shame has been widely acclaimed since its debut on NRK platforms in 2015. The show uses compelling narratives in real time with unknown actors and scripts that speak unflinchingly to a 16 year old audience, creating massive attention and huge ratings among young and adult audiences in Scandinavia.
