No background story is needed for this one. We are just going to pour in “Euphoria” facts that even the biggest fans don’t know. Before even casting, the role of Rue was written for Zendaya. Her refusing to take the role was not an option. Jacob Elordi who plays Nate Jacobs, the one we love to hate, was in a very different place before joining the cast. A movie he was working on wasn’t released and he was practically homeless without a dime to this name. The opportunity with “Euphoria” took his life into a new dimension and changed it for good.
You know the scenes when the room seems to be spinning around and around? Well, these are no screen-only illusions. The executive producer created a special set that included a real spinning room so the actors could connect with the character and be as authentic as the room would allow them to be.
Gilmore Girls Had the Need for Speed
"Gilmore Girls" was a heartwarming series that instantly became the flagship show of the producing network. The show revolves around the relationship of a single mother and her teen daughter with a cross-generational appeal that made the show incredibly successful. Alexis Bledel who played the teenager Rory Gilmore had her debut appearance on this show as she had no acting experience before joining the cast.
One of the hallmarks of the show was its speed. Not of the plot but of the communication. The pace of the dialogs was almost four times faster than the speed of any other show which led to fewer closeups on-screen than usual.
My Family Ran Itself Out Even the Actors Were Appalled
You either loved it or not, but the British show "My Family" has definitely left a mark on our list. It ran for 11 seasons and focused on a middle-class London family with a dysfunctional son and an I-don't-give-a-damn hilarious mother (Zoë Wanamaker who returned to our hearts in the first "Harry Potter" movie). It was a true success story as it presented what a real British family looked like and didn't try to paint the screen pink with a mainstream cult show.
Seven years into the show the storylines became obvious, there was hardly any innovation and the BBC predicted the end of the road. The cast even refused to take part in the final episodes as they were so badly written.
Gossip Girl Had Parents Going Mad
This teen TV show, one of the CW’s best pop soaps, takes place on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The show’s accolades of critical acclaim included reviews like, “Every parent’s nightmare” and “Mind-blowingly inappropriate.” The opinions differ, but the bottom line is "Gossip Girl" was a huge success and had a significant influence (especially fashion-wise) back in 2010.
"Gossip Girl" gave us so many wonderful love stories to choose from, but no couple was beloved as Blair and Chuck. The rich bad boy and queen B didn’t get along from the get-go but every time they met on our screens, sparks flew. The show had something for everyone, and everyone could find something of themselves in the show.
Skins Filmed Club Scenes Where?
Hold your horses, we are not aiming to waste our lines on the unsuccessful American version. We are referring to the British original that shocked the screens when first aired and showed a different side to teenagers' lives. The show is based on a short story the creator (Jamie Brittain ) wrote when he was just 15 years old. No wonder the storyline has almost no boundaries. No living adult could have thought of half of the stuff that was going on there.
The plot takes place in Bristol UK although the word Bristol is not mentioned even once. Most of the nightclub scenes were filmed not in a club but in a school. How odd. The storyline covers controversial issues such as dysfunctional families, illegal substances, and teen behavior at its extreme. Unsurprisingly, it earned a bunch of awards being the best TV Drama show from 2007 to 2011.
