  1. Skins

    Skins is a British teen drama that follows the lives of a group of teenagers in Bristol, South West England, through the two years of sixth form. Its controversial storylines have explored issues such as dysfunctional families, mental illness, adolescent sexuality, substance abuse and death. The show was created by father-and-son television writers Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain for Company Pictures, and premiered on E4 on 25 January 2007. The show went on to be a critical success as well as a ratings winner within its target demographic. As an ongoing drama series, Skins is atypical in that it replaces its primary cast every two years. In 2009, producers announced a Skins film was being discussed, but as of 2012 announcement of the show's cancellation, nothing has come of these plans. A specially-commissioned final seventh series is set to broadcast in 2013 which will feature the casts from its 2007–10 run. The show's name comes from the rolling papers known as "skins". Other ventures to expand the brand have included a short-lived North American remake, which aired on MTV in 2011 but was cancelled after one season after advertisers abandoned the series in response to low ratings and the significant controversy which arose over its depiction of teen sexuality.

Examples of skins in a Sentence

  1. Amesh Adalja:

    Anthrax is a zoonotic disease with human cases often tied to animal exposure. For example, multiple cases have occurred at African drumming events when individuals were exposed to animal drum skins that contained anthrax spores, because of the risk of spillover into humans, it is crucial to monitor animal anthrax outbreaks and delimit the exposure of humans while promptly administering post-exposure antibiotics to those exposed. It is also important to emphasize Anthrax is a major biowarfare threat and being prepared for outbreaks of animal origin directly enhances abilities to respond to a potential bioattack using anthrax.

  4. Lyndon B. Johnson:

    Until justice is blind to color, until education is unaware of race, until opportunity is unconcerned with the color of men's skins, emancipation will be a proclamation but not a fact.
