Is Josh Schwartz a Good Fit for a U.S. Version of Misfits?

Gossip Girl and Chuck creator Josh Schwartz can basically get anything on TV. He’s earned it. And according to Vulture, what he wants to make next is a remake of British sci-fi dramedy Misfits, which has already earned a loyal U.S. following on Hulu. Schwartz is so invested in the idea, in fact, that he’s writing the pilot script on spec, without a studio or network attached.

Someone is going to buy it: It’s a show about a group of juvenile delinquents who get hit by lightning while doing community service and develop superpowers, including mind-reading, invisibility, turning back time, immortality, and self-cloning. So basically, it’s Skins meets Heroes. That is definitely a TV recipe for keeping me away (and watching the pilot confirmed my suspicions), but if there was an audience for Skins on MTV, I suppose there could be an audience for this, too. (Twentieth Century Fox is certainly betting on it: The studio's upcoming feature film, Chronicle, is about a group of brahs who develop three of the same superpowers after encountering a "mysterious substance in the woods." Watch the trailer here to compare-and-contrast.) Last November, The Guardian called Misfits' second season “preposterous...scary...still funny, and jarringly shocking. It rolls around joyously in its own filth. All that and great music, too. One can only imagine how bad the inevitable American version will be.” Soon, one won’t need to; one is about to find out!

Watch the pilot episode and tell us what you think.

No, This is a bad idea, Misfits being a British only show is great. I love British shows and when things are converted to American, they suck balls. I love our American TV series, when they are originally made here for us, but when things get converted, they just fail. Look at The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo; The main star in the movie is Elizabeth (probably spelled different) but the original movie is great, the actress is not only good looking, but she is a great actress and really makes the film seem real. The other main character is (if I could remember his name) pretty good, not a great looking fella but more like an average joe, and his acting talents work good in the film. Now convert it, the actress is less than good looking and they put a huge actor in the film with great looks and just overly popularized. It's not the story, it is not the same, we butcher shows that are great. Look at most of our shows anyway, last year and in 2010, there were at least 20 or more shows on major networks that got canceled mid-first season. I for one think this one is a bad idea and they need to leave it be.

Actually in reference to the show The Office, the US version is the remake of the British version not vice versa. And I see no resemblance of Misfits to that horrendous Heroes!

After reading al ot of the comments on this page I have to say. Sorry but "Misfits" (2009) copied "Heroes" (2006) although "Misifts" is a good show, and the British messed up "The Hills" (2006) which was an extension of "Laguna Beach" (2004) with an entertaining but even more bimbo version called "The only way is Essex" . The first reality TV show as "An American Family," a 12-episode documentary that aired on PBS in 1973. So you can't go there With Americans copying shows. America created the first real reality T.V . Also Just like whoever made "Misfits" America is more about advancement. Taking something and making it better than it was, ever evolving. Again it's great to see different cultural shows. Not to be offensive towards you who are British because the "Misfits" is one of the 1st shows who holds an American following, but because most of your stuff is down right boring and to old school for Americans.

Are we really going to make a remake of a remake? when does it end? It's already a great remake of the American show "Heroe's" with comedic twist. I like the British characters, I like the accent. I think it's not only great just how it is but refreshing to see a show made by another culture. It's already well directed, edited and filmed. It's already a hit with Americans on Hulu.com I think it will be a hit just how it is on any network. I can't say it's a better remake, "Heroes" was it's own dramatic animal, but it's a more Culturally diverse version of the same idea with an on going twist which also at times has a sarcastic sense of humor. There is obviously no competition between the shows now. The show "Heroes' is over so why not just air the British show as it is, Obviously there is already an American fan base with the show as it is right now! Why fix something that's not broken? I think it's to late anyways, it's built enough of an American fan base and people are attached to the characters. It would be better off for a network to purchase the show as it is rather than spend millions of dollars to remake it again. I liked "Heroes" I like the new version and different version of it called "Misfits" let it go as it is on American networks. Americans will have to get past the different lingo at first but once the understand the way the British talk they will like it.

HELL no. The only uk show remake that was good is the office. Not to mention this guys shows suck ass, Gossip Girl? Chuck? they're horrible. Skins was a piece of shit mainly because it aired on MTV and basically anything on MTV nowadays is tailored to 16 year old girls and douchebag jocks. The only way a US remake of misfits could work is if they replaced the writer and they pitched it to tv networks like HBO, Show Time, or maybe AMC. Other than that it would be great if they didn't do a remake at all.

I'm American, and even I say this is a terrible idea, freaks over here barley, ever come up with ANYTHING original. Barley ever..... and for this possible idea form this dick, and for every other show that has been remade from the UK, I should be speaking for the Us when I say, I am so so so so so so so SORRY, seriously, I truly apologies for our creators lack of creativity, and having to take amazing shows and just dumb them down to pretty blondes and too buff guys.

Misfits is a great show. Sorry America, but you will probably screw this this up. Saying that your take on Shameless was good (although you basically copied ours) also, Free Agents was pretty good (although you basically copied ours... and it's been cancelled). I've not watched your version of Being Human yet, but apparently it's OK (it won't be as good as ours though).

We did. It was called Heroes. Then someone took our idea and altered it. It was called Misfits. Now we look at that and see how to grow from that. Its called evolution. When you try and make a better show its always for the good. If it doesnt work it doesnt work. However I wouldnt mind seeing it.

I wish they would just stop making these american remakes, they're never as real, human and GOOD as the original versions. As soon as the US does a show about teens they use top models (as if the average teenager really look that way!?), at least British shows brings some reality to their characters, even sci-fi shows are more believeble than the US-shows because the characters are so human. I honestly don't believe an american version of Misfits will even come close to beeing as good as the original.

No way a US version is going to be able to capture the raw and rude spirit of the UK Misfits. American network TV is waayyy too watered down. On top of that, network TV demands 22 episodes a season, for profitable reason, which only adds strains on the creative development of a series, which leads it to suffer. The only way I can see it working is if it was on Showtime or Starz or something. Whats worse about this US remake is that they're going to use actors who can't act and dont suit the character profile. They'll probably be models "trying" to act. So thumbs down. It wouldnt be fair to the diverse, exotic, hardworking actors of the original Misfits who brough it to international fame, for a US version to come along, that probably has more money, and tr to steal its shine and bank off their success.

Misfits is really the polar opposite of Heroes. It's the story from the villians point of view, although they don't like to think of themselves as villians. If there's anything wrong with the British version is that they get too caught up in the sex and offensive behavior and don't concentrate enough on story.

There's no way in hell that Misfits is making it onto US television unscathed. The language will go, the sex will go, the drugs will go and by the end it won't even be Misfits anymore. Also, we don't even know if OUR version will survive without Nathan, let's see how it plays out before doing another version without Nathan.

There's no reason Nathan wouldn't be a character in the US version. Just because the actor left the UK show doesn't mean they will leave the character out of the American remake.

why dont they try finding an ORIGINAL IDEA? really wish they'd stop ripping off british ideas and making them "better", since most shows remade from others are crap, "the killing" for example. about the only succesful show has been "the office" which is only cos they shoved millions into every episode for big name actors?

Original huh? and don't get me wrong I am an American who loves misfits and I don't really think a remake would turn out well. But you have to admit that Misfits DID copy/ripoff Heroes with the whole superhoodie storyline and there many times in the second season the music sounds almost exactly like heroes music. Starting with Curtis standing on the ledge in his flashforward like Peter Petrelli, and actually the superhoodie reveal. Go back and watch any Heroes episode than those parts in Misfits and you will see what I mean. And also for the record just because we Americans have remade many of your shows that turned out crappy does not in take away the quality of the British originals in any way. You still have the shows they aren't going anywhere. And what is wrong with maybe feeling proud that we find your shows to be so fantastic that we attempt to remake them. Plus the fact that we have to buy the rights from your producers to remake them so they are obviously cool with it, we aren't just making the shows here without them knowing it.

I think I would actually really like an American version. Though I enjoy the show, I really do not care for the excessive foul language, sexual references, and sex. All of that detracts from my enjoyment of the show, and to me it comes across as filler for a lack of better screenwriting/plot/humor/creativity. I really enjoy some British humor (I'm a huge fan of Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister, as well as Dr. Who), but for some shows I just find it repulsive and crass. An American remake would almost certainly clean it up and for that I would be grateful. (Not to mention it would probably have a higher budget, which means better special effects and action.)



As for American remakes in general, I think the American Being Human is way better than the British one (which I watched first and liked). I have many friends who love the American version of The Office, but can't stand the British version (I don't like either). I also thought Torchwood: Miracle Day was quite good, though I couldn't stand the new characters with the exception of Esther and Vera.



If Josh Schwartz does make an American version I'll probably watch it (I'll probably keep watching the British version since the story is bound to be somewhat different). Hopefully it will be good or at least decent. If not, it's not like people are being forced to watch it, so no harm done and it will just go the way of other failed remakes: fade into obscurity.

I think american remakes are more "glamorous" but sometimes thats not a good thing, its the raw atmosphere of these type of shows that make them so great imo.

The only remake that I like is The Office and that had to do with the actors but Torchwood and Being Human were horrible and couldnt watch more than a few eps...

Torchwood was not a remake, it was still done by Russel T. Davies and it was just filmed and broadcast in America for the first time, so don't blame that on us

As a person who always finds the British versions (invariably charming and witty) less action packed than the American versions (which I LOVE) better, I have to say, Misfits as a British series will always be better. There is NOTHING wrong with Misfits as it is now. Just buy it, America, and stop trying to remake something amazing. As a side note, I CANNOT understand the blond until the fifth episode, so just voice over. Comeon now....

Please dont judge Misfits on its pilot! I ADORE the show but the pilot is definitely pretty ridiculous and not the best representation of what potential the show really reaches. I definitely don't think there should be a US version though, you really can't get away with what they can in the UK and without that UK humour, you wouldn't have a show.
Reply

Is self-cloning the power of the new guy who replaced Nathan?

Anyways, the American version will suck because some things are just done better by Brits.

If it's to air on a major network (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX) they need to cut down on the nudity, language, and violence which takes most of the humour out. The only hope would be for it to air on premium cable (HBO, Showtime), and even then it probably wouldn't translate well.

Plus, I can't imagine anyone doing a better job than Robert Sheehan.

Well the US remade The Office, and that was good. The US remade Being Human and that was good too. It is always hard to tell what something will be like when you compare it to something else, more actions scenes and less mindless sex scenes (yes, sex scene are more mindless than action scenes, sorry) along with a good cast... I could see this working. Probably won't be of the same flavor as the UK version, but I'll watch it (along with Season 3 of the original).
Reply

This idiot spoiled the big mystery of the first season for those who want to check this out.



Anyway, I'm back and forth on a remake.



- Despite the powers, Misfits is very unique in tone and visual style. They often like to take the time to just soak in a moment or idea. U.S. tv isn't wired that way.

+ But Misfits can tend to meander sometimes, and an American remake may be better paced and focused.



- The characters feel like real young people. (One of them is even teased for having a big fanny :) The American remake will surely cast bland pretty kids.

+ But it is hard to understand the accents a lot of the time, and a few of the group don't have as much to do. The new show could highlight the ensemble more, instead of just the Nathan character.



- The show is VULGAR. They hold no punches with language violence and especially sexuality. It would be weaker if toned down and Josh Schwartz is NOT the man for this.

+ But imagine if this remake were on HBO or Showtime. It's a trashy pleasure that could have True Blood-esque appeal.

At first I was thinking I wouldnt watch Misfits, thought it was a show made for our ever increasing uneducated population of chavs. But I watched the first episode and got hooked, it's a pretty decent show.



But I agree, yet another british show being remade by an american channel. We know most of them end up being terrible, so why do so many still try? Is it becuase there is no more originality left in Hollywood? Or are they too afraid to sign up the few who do come up with good ideas because they may have to risk it being a flop? Just look at the Charlies Angels remake, a classic which most were expecting to be respected and done properly, completely butchers and axed immediately!



Maybe Britain is the new Hollywood, perhaps the writers should send in their ideas here and see how many get a response...

I don't really think Misfits should be remade, but seeing as it's inevitable, Josh Shwartz isn't a bad choice, seeing as he's already shown he can make acceptable dramedy, as well as seemingly trying to show a lot of integrity with this project, developing it with the original creator of Misfits, and writing the pilot without any sort of network meddling, making it plausible for it to actually be decent. Probably wont be though, seeing as it'll probably go to The CW, NBC, or MTV if no better choices comes up. And any of those networks would without a doubt mess it up no matter how good the original plans for the remake would be.

To be fair, only one of those is still on TV. Thanks to Smallville, it's been a while since there was only one superhero show on american TV. So there's certainly room for one more, just probably not this one. Also, they aren't actually "hero[es]", which is kind of the point.

I thought about that just after I posted the message. All of those shows except Alphas were all canceled due to lack of viewership. I don't know what makes them think that Misfits would be any different, especially because they would have to remove all of the good bits for the American TV audience.
Reply

I watched all those shows. I'm not inside the network execs' heads, but if I were the one canceling those shows it would have been for these reasons:

Smallville - clark was pushing 30 without becoming superman

Heroes - significant decline in quality, too expensive

The Cape - just plain terrible

No Ordinary Family - also terrible (though not as terrible)



After all, Heroes had several times as many viewers when it was cancelled than Alphas did when it was renewed.

*Sigh* "proper english"? Let's see Britain contains a country called England, it's language, English. see how they both start with Engl, that's normally a clue as to where the language originates; kindda like how Japanese originates in Japan.



Sorry but we brits like to point it out, we speak perfect English, most of the time; unfortunately as usual America likes to take things and claim it as their own, and have ruined the language such that americans cannot understand proper english any more.



Accents are tricky, but different regions of the USA have different accents yet we can still understand them.



Also Angela yet we make shows for us, but americans make shows for themselves as well. For instance the remake of Battlestar, Sci-Fi decided not to do a series after showing the mini-series. But it did well in the UK so Sky helped fund it.

Heroes season 1 was great on both sides, but US execs and audience wanted more action, it was still a hit in the US but in the UK, with the plot gone some were put off season 2, and it got worse season on season.



tbh it seems US execs dont know a good show when they see one, so many good shows have been cancelled whislt so many bad shows have continued.
