PTC Wants 'Skins' Investigated for Child Pornography


Plus, Taco Bell wants nothing to do with the controversial new show, moving its ads to other MTV programs that suit them better.

Officials at a leading U.S. family organization have urged federal agents to investigate reports suggesting a controversial new MTV series features underage actors and actresses in sex scenes. Parents Television Council bosses are disturbed by child pornography allegations made against racy new series "Skins", which has been adapted for the U.S. after becoming a hit in Britain.

In a strongly-worded letter to the the U.S Department of Justice, the PTC writes, "In addition to the sexual content on the show involving cast members as young as 15, PTC counted 42 depictions and references to drugs and alcohol in the premiere episode." TMZ.com reports MTV executives have already met to discuss the issue.

On related news, Taco Bell is pulling their ads from the "Skins" hour. In a statement to THR, the food brand said, "Upon further review, we've decided that the show is not a fit for our brand and have moved our advertising to other MTV programming."
