20 Cult Favorite Movies That Were Supposed To Be TV Shows First
Scum briefly *was* made for television, but Ray Winstone’s signature work was pulled from broadcast by the BBC for being disgusting. Ray then went on to create an equally disgusting (and even more profane!) feature film from his script with most of the same actors two years later. It got rid of a gay subplot for really no reason but made everything more violent. Bold choices were made. The original television creation did eventually air again, but not on the BBC. Good to know that when it comes to brutal violence, Channel Four is the British network to watch.
