MTV is taking its hit show Teen Mom across the pond. The music cable network, known more for its revolutionary and break-thru reality Television shows, announced that it will launch its Brit version in Autumn 2016.
“We’ll use this expertise to give Teen Mom a fresh lease of life, combined with a unique British twist, which we’re confident will have massive appeal to local audiences,” MTV UK‘s Jill Offman 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.”
There have been 12 seasons of Teen Mom, which started as a short run docu-series called 16 and Pregnant, and it has spun off several celebrities: Farrah Abraham, Jenelle Evans, Caitlynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, Amber Portwood, Maci Bookout and Leah Messer.
And MTV is asking for Brit teen moms to apply. Oh boy!
