Shameless is an American television comedy-drama which airs on Showtime. This remake of the award-winning British series is set in Chicago's Canaryville[1][2][3] neighborhood on the South Side, although filmed in Los Angeles, with the exterior scenes filmed in Chicago.[4] The series premiered on January 9, 2011.[5] The show's second season, which began shooting on July 5, 2011[6] premiered on Sunday, January 8, 2012.[7] On February 1, 2012, the series was renewed for a third season,[8] which began shooting on June 27, 2012[9] and premiered on Sunday, January 13, 2013.[10] On January 29, 2013, Showtime renewed Shameless for a fourth season,[11] which premiered on January 12, 2014. On February 18, 2014, Showtime renewed Shameless for a fifth season,[12] which premiered on January 11, 2015. On January 12, 2015, Showtime renewed Shameless for a sixth season.[13]

Premise[edit]

The series depicts 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.[14] 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."[14] 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".[14]

Episodes[edit]

Development[edit]

Somehow all the resonances from the original series occur in the remake, but in a different vocabulary.

—Paul Abbott[14]

HBO began developing an American version of Shameless after striking a deal with John Wells in January 2009.[15] By October 2009 the development had moved to Showtime. John Wells Productions filmed a pilot episode for the cable network in December 2009.[16] William H. Macy stars in the lead role as Frank Gallagher.[17] Also joining the cast were former Dragonball Evolution co-stars Emmy Rossum as Fiona and Justin Chatwin as Steve.[18][19] Paul Abbott, whose semi-autobiographical telescript became the pilot episode for the original UK version, is credited as an executive producer on the U.S. version.[14]

In April 2010, Showtime green-lit the series with a twelve-episode order.[20] In late August Joan Cusack was cast as Sheila, a romantic interest for Frank, replacing Allison Janney, who portrayed the role in the pilot.[21] Production began in mid-September.[21]

A preview of the pilot aired on December 12, 2010, after the Season 5 finale of Dexter. The first season officially began airing on Showtime on Sunday, January 9, 2011.[5] It is filmed in the North Lawndale[22] community area of Chicago[23] and Burbank, California, at Warner Bros. Studios. A unique presenting trademark is a main characters' breaking the fourth wall at episode beginnings, inquiring as to why the viewer supposedly did not view the previous episode before recap flashbacks with unaired scenes.

Production[edit]

Initial shooting of the second season began on July 5, 2011[6] and premiered January 8, 2012.[7] Third season renewal was on February 1, 2012,[8] and initial shooting began June 27, 2012[9] and premiering on January 13, 2013.[10] Fourth season renewal was on January 29, 2013,[11] and premiering January 12, 2014. Fifth season renewal was on February 18, 2014.[12] Production on the first episode began on July 3, 2014 with the first episode table read,[24] with initial shooting for the season beginning on July 8, 2014.[25][26]

Music[edit]

The theme song for Shameless is "The Luck You Got" by indie rock group The High Strung. Majority of the music featured throughout the series are generally from indie rock bands. The pilot episode made use of music from artists such as Say Hi, 3OH!3 featuring Ke$ha, The Vines, The Moog and LMFAO.[27] The show has also featured music from Let's Wrestle, The Eels, The Blue Van, Alien Crime Syndicate, and Freeplay Music. Music from The High Strung, Soho3, Say Hi and The High Planes Drifters can be heard multiple times throughout the show. A few songs being "We Are The Men You'll Grown To Love Soon", "Silly Boy" and Beginners Luck. Capital Cities has been heard on the show with their song "Who's That Dude Pt. 1", as well as Johnny Foreigner with "Absolute Balance" and Bosshouse Music with "Chicago Blues". The last episode of season one featured two songs by The Diner with the first being "Indie Dreams" and with "Sun and Soil" being the second. In promotion for the second season premiere the entire cast of shameless sang their own version of a Christmas Carol "except this one dings grandma’s holiday turkey and suggests the best route home in case you partake in too much holiday cheer" entitled Shameless: Christmas Carol.[28][29][30] It can also be found on the special features of the season 2 DVD featurette.[31]

The second season score on Metacritic is a 76 of 100, indicating increasingly favorable reviews.[34] Tom O'Neill of the Los Angeles Times acknowledged the Emmy buzz around Shameless, especially the performance of Emmy Rossum, stating "she didn't have much Emmy buzz after Shameless debuted in January, but that changed after she gave powerhouse turns in such episodes as 'But at Last Came a Knock'".[35] BuddyTV ranked Shameless #8 on its list of 2011's best new TV shows.[36] Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gave the first season a 'fresh' rating of 74% based on 31 reviews, with the critical consensus "Shameless is a dark, urban dramedy that overcomes its leaps of logic thanks to fantastic casting, intriguing ambiance, and shock value."
