MTV is all about reliving its glory days. On the heels of its blockbuster deal for The Real World, MTV Studios announced today plans to reimagine Undressed, another groundbreaking series that explored the complicated dynamics of young adult relationships.
Celebrated for its honest take on gender, class and race, Undressed helped launch the careers of hundreds of young actors and behind the scenes talent, including: Christina Hendricks, Jason Ritter, Max Greenfield, Brandon Routh, Chad Michael Murray, Katee Sackhoff, Adam Brody, Autumn Reeser and Damon Lindelof.
“’Undressed’ was ahead of its time and we’re looking forward to developing the series for a whole new generation,” said Pamela Post, Head of Scripted Programming for MTV Studios, MTV, VH1 and Logo. “Much has changed in the dating/relationship world since the series first premiered and we’re excited to showcase how both have evolved.”
MTV aired more than 200 episodes from 1999 – 2002 of the GLAAD Award winner which was widely praised by fans and critics alike for being one of the only shows at the time to feature gay, lesbian and bisexual characters and same-sex relationships. By offering an unfiltered look at the romantic lives of these characters, Undressed proved to be one of the most inclusive shows of its generation.
