The popular MTV show Teen Mom is coming to the UK!
MTV UK revealed earlier today that they will produce a British version of the reality show. The first season is set to have eight episodes and will premiere in the fall.
Jill Offman from MTV said, “MTV UK has a great track record of re-versioning hit shows from our sister channel in the U.S. – we turned Jersey Shore into Geordie Shore and smashed ratings records in the process. We’ll use this expertise to give Teen Mom a fresh lease of life, combined with an unique British twist, which we’re confident will have massive appeal to local audiences.”
The original Teen Mom show is already quite popular in the United Kingdom. 12 seasons of the show has been shown in the UK since spring 2010. It is one of MTV UK’s most popular shows according to the network. Teen Mom has 4.7 million viewers aged 16-34.
The network also stated that, “the U.K. version of the show will have the same core value of authenticity as the original and will follow a cast of teenage girls juggling their emotional teenage years with becoming a parent for the first time”.
