As much fun as it is to watch the hi-jinks of the pretty young (and rich) things of the Upper East Side every week, it's sometimes hard to relate to the rarefied world of Serena van der Woodsen and co. I mean, who has that many syllables in their surname? If you've been pining for a teen series that's grittier and more grounded in reality, let me introduce you to MTV's new series "Skins."
Based on the popular British show of the same name, "Skins" follows a group of nine friends navigating the often-tumultuous world of high school; sex, drugs and angst included.
Check out the trailer for the new series (which premieres January 2011)!
Will you be tuning in to "Skins"?
