Why we can’t wait to see ”Skin”

THE DEAL Comely young ‘uns Adam (D.J. Cotrona) and Jewel (Olivia Wilde) fall passionately in love, only to discover their fathers, a Los Angeles district attorney and a porn producer, respectively, are trying to destroy one another.

WHAT IT’S LIKE “The O.C.” meets director Baz Luhrmann’s “Romeo + Juliet”

FUN FACT Look for “Melrose Place” alum Laura Leighton playing a hard-nosed campaign manager.

WHY WE CAN’T WAIT The network trumpets that sex, race, politics, beauty, obsession, and prejudice will all be covered in depth. Oh, is that all?

WHY WE’RE HOOKED Did we mention the adult film industry backdrop? If the strippers in the premiere are any indication, racy cable programming may have met its network match.
