Yellow, Black and White acquired the rights to adapt the popular British TV series Shameless

Several years ago, Yellow, Black and White acquired the rights to adapt the popular British TV series Shameless — winner of major awards such as BAFTA and British Comedy Awards.

In the Russian version, the main character — Gosha Gruzdev — is a lazy, single father, living with his children in a rundown house. He has long stopped looking after himself or his children, so, the elder daughter, Katya, has taken on the job of managing the housework and bringing up her younger sisters and brothers. The characters face many comic situations that prove that there is nothing more important than family.

The soundtrack uses Russian hits from different eras. The music became one of the most important parts of this show. The creators of the TV series turned to social media to find suitable tracks. More than one hundred people sent in their music for the soundtrack.
