The first clips from ‘Skam Austin’, which will be broadcast on Facebook’s US streaming service, were released via social media this week.
As with the original Norwegian series, ‘Skam Austin’ gives viewers insight and sneak previews of the lives of its characters via videos and other content posted on social media accounts.
And the first glimpses of what is to come have now been made available online by production company XIX Entertainment, which made the series for Facebook Watch.
Fans of the show initially began speculating after Facebook page ‘SKAM Austin’ began publishing video clips last week.
The first video, a teaser, confirmed that the first episode will be released on April 24th.
Further videos have since appeared online, as have Instagram accounts connected to characters from the new series.
Julie Andem, screenwriter on the original version of Skam, also directed the new US series.
“This proves that NRK has made something world class, and is being noticed all over the world,” the Norwegian broadcaster's director Thor Gjermund Eriksen said to NRK when the US series was announced last year.
