MTV orders UK version of smash hit US series Teen Mom from True North

MTV UK has ordered a UK version of the ground-breaking, access-all-areas documentary series Teen Mom.

Inspired by the hit TV show created for MTV in the US, Teen Mom UK will be produced by True North and will feature an entirely British cast.

The 8 x 60’ series is scheduled to air on MTV UK in autumn 2016.

The original US series of Teen Mom first premiered on MTV in 2009 as a spin-off of 16 and Pregnant and proved itself a firm favourite with MTV audiences around the world. The series has run for 12 successful seasons on MTV UK since its debut in March 2010 and is among its top performing shows reaching 4.7 million 16-34s and 12.2 million individuals across all TXs.

The UK 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.

Jill Offman, MD, MTV UK said: “MTV UK has a great track record of re-versioning hit shows from our sister channel in the US. 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 UK audiences.”

Fiona O’Sullivan, Executive Producer, True North said: “True North is delighted to be entrusted with making the UK version of Teen Mom. We have a long and fruitful relationship with MTV so we look forward to getting to work on this project to make more appointment to view TV.”

Teen Mom UK has been commissioned by MTV UK’s MD, Jill Offman, Louise Holmes, VP Programming and Senior Director of Programming, Kelly Bradshaw.
