About TV show Skam season 4
Behind the series was the idea of making NRK's Internet service more attractive to a younger audience. Julie Andem, who has been working for the NRK since 2007 and has been involved in the NRK Super series for three series, which were conceived as fictional videoblogs: Sara, Mia and Jenter. In the latter, Andem took over the director, script and editor, and developed the concept together with Ingvill Marie Nyborg. After four successful seasons, NRK P3 finally approached them to develop a similar series for a youthful audience.
To prepare the series thoroughly, Andem traveled through Norway for six months and interviewed teenagers about their lives. In her opinion, she identified a defining element: pressure - which teenagers feel exposed to and whom they want to take with their television series. She did not work with professional actors, but, in a casting of 1,200 young people, she was looking for the most promising candidates, from whom she then developed the figures of the series. It was shot with a very tight time contingent, as most actors go to school or have a job. The first line of action developed by Andem was the relationship between Noora and William (Season 2); To prepare this story properly, she wrote Season 1 as a prehistory to it.
The series was almost exclusively advertised via social media, as the target audience had the most opportunity to discover them on their own initiative, according to executive producer Hakon Moslet. Because of the special concept of real-time publishing and interactivity by incorporating social media into the story, for which Mari Magnus is responsible as a web producer, Skam is particularly successful as a web series.  From the third season, she also received attention from abroad, whereupon the NRK was confronted with demands for English subtitles for the videos available in the media library in any case worldwide. However, this was refused, inter alia, on the grounds that the licensing of the pieces of music used did not allow marketing abroad. At the same time, they were unofficially on the Internet to distribute subtitled broadcasts.
