Shameless


Shameless is an American television drama series that airs on Showtime on Sundays at 9 pm Eastern/8 pm Central.

It is a remake of the award-winning British series of the same name broadcast on Channel 4. The series is set in Chicago’s South Side Canaryville neighborhood, although it is filmed in South Lawndale, Chicago[1] and Burbank, California at Warner Bros. Studios. The series premiered on January 9, 2011.[2] The show’s second season, which began shooting on July 5,[3] premiered on Sunday, January 8, 2012.[4] On February 1, 2012, it was renewed for a third season.[5]

Premise

The series follows the dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father of six children. While he spends his days drunk, his kids learn to take care of themselves.

The show’s producers sought to distinguish it from previous American working-class shows by highlighting how Frank’s alcoholism affects his family.[6] Paul Abbott, creator of the original, said, “It’s not My Name Is Earl or Roseanne. It’s got a much graver level of poverty attached to it. It’s not blue collar; it’s no collar.”[6] When John Wells, the showrunner, began pitching the show, he had to fight efforts to place the show in the South or in a trailer park. He explained, “We have a comedic tradition of making fun of the people in those worlds. The reality is that these people aren’t ‘the other’ — they’re people who live four blocks down from you and two blocks over”.[6]
