Film and TV script writer Tom Bidwell is jetting off to America this summer, to work on the US version of a hit drama he has penned for the past couple of years.
Channel 4’s My Mad Fat Diary is an adaptation of a real diary from an obese 16-year-old girl who lives in Australia, and Tom says writing the script helped him overcome some traumatic experiences from his own teenage years.
The news that MTV has commissioned a pilot for an American version of the show is even more exciting, as it coincides with an announcement that the UK series has been nominated for a BAFTA (British Academy Film and Television Award).FML!!! MTV ruins everything… I just nope… Can’t even deal with this… How will they even stay true to the story?? In America we like to change shit to appease viewers. In America we would never accept someone like Rae who is mental and plus sized. All we would focus on is her weight. Watch them put someone like that girl from ugly Betty as Rae . I would just…luvs-jadeI’m so mad lololtheblanknotebook facephaseI hope this is all a dream…
Nope. HAHAHA NOPE.
BIDWELL, THIS IS WHAT YOU’VE BEEN UP TO WHILE IN HIDING?!!
MTV? BLASPHEMY. Shit will go down. Bidwell, I assure you nothing good will ever come out from MTV circa now.
YOU COULD HAVE DONE SERIES 3, BIDWELL. YOU COULD HAVE CHOSEN THE HIGHER POWER BUT YOU CHOSE THE SLIPPERY SLOPE.
This will be your downfall. MMFD US will be your downfall.
but what’s wrong with the UK version? Why can’t they air it in the states? who authorized this? so is that it then for the uk, no s3? i can live with that but I can’t live with a shitty version of mmfd. I mean, look at what happened to Skins and Inbetweeners. fucking insulting.
Random pics of Finn Nelson, My Mad Fat Diary
mosaics are made from broken pieces but they’re still works of art and so are you
I’m curious how many people do rely on the tumble.
Photo on the right, my very own Finn in 1996
Right, so I was sorting through some old photos today and came across the photo on the right, he’s the boy I was going out with in, wait for it, 1996 (not gonna tell you how old he is, but older than 17, because that would also give my age away and I am just too embarrassed of that).
He was a cute, skinny guy and I was overweight and he loved me for who I was, even defended me on more than one occasion against comments from other people.
I know I’m preaching to the converted anyway as we all totally believe in Rinn, but I wanted to post the comparison to prove that the Finn and Rae OTP is totally realistic. Plus the photo brings back good memories of the hazy days of summer 1996.
Thank you and learningacceptanceme for passing this to me.
but I cannot form a single truthful thing i like right now.
Between you and stac!
1. You are an AMAZING artist.
2. You are kind and thoughtful and generous (from what I can see from your blog, but I bet it’s true all the time.)
aw it’s really nice to know i am perceived that way. v observant of you. i do strive to be those 3 things, and it’s no good when no one’s around all the time to appreciate my being so.
not that I missed you or anything…okay I might have thought about you once.. alright, twice… [x]
