Josh Schwartz's teen drama The O.C. is getting a Turkish remake. And though it's obviously impossible to discern what happens in the trailer, the similarities are eerie: boy steals car with brother, boy goes to jail, boy gets kicked out, boy gets saved by rich, concerned-looking lawyer with a geeky, curly-haired son, boy meets tragic, bored-looking girl. It may sound like a weird show to remake, but it's not totally unheard of: there have been lots of remakes between countries over the years, some great and some strange (and no, I'm not just talking about the countless U.S. remakes of British shows). Let's take a look.
