Showtime has greenlighted a pilot by Emmy-winner John Wells, an American version of the long-running British drama "Shameless," that will headline actor William H. Macy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

John Wells Productions has been shopping this project, the story of a boy growing up in a working-class family with eight children, for five years. The U.S. version will be set in Chicago during the current economic hard times.
