The US adaptation of Shameless finally hits Australian screens this Sunday night, on W.
The show, originally set to air on GO!, was adapted by John Wells (ER, Third Watch, The West Wing) but creator Paul Abbott remains an Executive Producer.
William H. Macy heads up the very reckless Gallagher family, who live in Chicago’s South Side. Joan Cusack also has a guest role.
The series was renewed for a second season in March.
Frank Gallagher, a father of six, spends more time partying than raising his kids, so his eldest daughter Fiona provides adult supervision for her younger siblings. When Fiona is robbed, she meets a handsome young man, while Lip makes a discovery about Ian.
9:20pm Sunday on W.
