Rai Play, the Italian pubcaster’s AVoD platform, has ordered a local remake of Norwegian teen drama Nudes from Rai Fiction and Wild Bunch Group’s Bim Produzione.

Nudes tells the stories of three teenagers who must deal with the aftermath of their nude images being spread online via social media. The original anthology series debuted on NRK in Norway last year.

The Italian 10×20’ adaptation will be directed by Laura Luchetti, who said: “Nudes is a project I care a lot about because it gives me the opportunity to depict in an in-depth and realistic way the ‘revenge porn’ phenomenon, an existing alarming reality among young people.”

Emanuela Canonico, Valerio D’Annunzio, Matteo Menduni and Giulio Fabroni are writing the Italian version, with Riccardo Russo producing.

The original Norwegian series is distributed by Wild Bunch TV and has been picked up internationally by channels including digital net BBC3 in the UK.

The news comes after Wild Bunch TV unveiled three new dramas to international buyers this month. French-language political thriller Crisis Unit (6×50′) is produced by Tipimages Productions, Entre Chien & Loup and Samsa Film for Swiss public broadcaster RTS.

Fragile (10×45′), meanwhile, is a French-Canadian crime drama from Montreal-based Amalga Créations Médias for Canadian pubcaster ICI.Tou/Radio-Canada, while We Are Now (10×45′) is German teen drama made by Producers At Work for RTL-owned platform TVNow.
