Skin

Show Summary

A modern-day Romeo and Juliet set against an adult film industry backdrop. The daughter of a porn industry mogul falls in love with the son of a district attorney, whose quest is to take down the porn king. SKIN is the story of two young lovers, desperate to be together, but who have two warring families who will do anything to keep them apart, and almost anything to destroy each other. ADAM (D. J. COTRONA), a 17-year-old Latino from east L.A., meets JEWEL (OLIVIA WILDE), 16, a wealthy, beautiful Westside girl, at a party. They fall for each other, passionately, purely, and completely, before they realize that their parents are at "war." Adam's Latina mother LAURA (RACHEL TICOTIN), a judge, and Anglo father TOM (KEVIN ANDERSON, "Nothing Sacred"), the Los Angeles District Attorney, are prominent members of the city's judicial system. And, at the moment, Tom happens to be investigating and prosecuting Jewel's father, LARRY (RON SILVER), the most successful producer of adult entertainment in Los Angeles. SKIN is about sex and race. SKIN is about politics. And most of all SKIN is about skin: complexion, beauty, desire, attraction, obsession, and prejudice in contemporary Los Angeles.moreless

    This show, let\'s face it, was not deserving of an Emmy in its first episode. It was an interesting innovation of a classic story, and with Jerry Bruckheimer in charge, it would have been a hit. Three episodes, though, is a ridiculously small window of opportunity for viewers to get hooked. Fox is famous for cancelling shows midseason and not giving them a real chance to become popular, but with this Fox showed just how impatient it is. It was great of SoapNet to show the remaining unaired episodeds... but I just found that out today. I had no idea that SoapNet was doing such a thing. I didn\'t really even know I had SoapNet. And now they aren\'t airing them anymore. So, I missed my chance to see the rest of this could-have-been-wonderful show. And so has the rest of the world. If Fox had given the show a better chance, maybe it would have become a hit. You never know.moreless

    I can't believe Fox took this off the air..I watched it when they showed it and I loved it..I got so mad when they just cancelled it without even a warning...I don\'t understand why they did that..i did\'t know the soap channel was showing it on Saturdays until I saw the final episode play..I hope they replay them because i want to see them..Dumb move FOX..Bring it BACKKKKK
  • SoapNet just finished showing the remaining episodes of Skin. What an amazing show. Fox should be disappointed that they cancelled this show. I guess i was happy that the last episode left a feeling of complete with the series, but also wanting more.moreless

    Recently, Skin has been shown on Saturday nights on Soapnet as part of their Dysfunctional Family Night at 10pm est. As I watch the previously unaired episodes, I can't help but think why Fox would cancel this spectacular show. This is a primetime soap at its finest. The twists and turns every week keep you on the edge of your seat and shock you. First we learn that the seeming innocent District Attourney is having an affair with his campaign manager. Then we learn that the Mayor has fathered a child with a porn star and is having the president of a major porn producing company cover it up. While all of this crazyness is going on with the adults of the show, their children are having their own drama. Adam,the son of the D.A. and Jules, the daughter of porn producer; have recently started dating and fallen in love. They have to keep their relationship under wraps because both of their fathers are swarn enemies. This is just the tip of the iceberg. As each week progresses, Skin takes the drama to a new level. This is one of the best dramas created in the past couple of years. I can't believe this fantastic show was canceled.moreless
