MTV is bringing viewers a summer full of "inbetweeners" - that is, not nerds or jocks, but kids who are smack in the middle of the high school social ladder.
Following in the vein of established scripted hits on the network such as Teen Wolf and Awkward, The Inbetweeners takes a comedic look at a group of teenagers navigating high school and charging into adulthood the way everyone does... by taking one step forward and three steps back.
Whether humiliating themselves in an effort to impress the girl of their dreams, or mercilessly mocking their friend for driving a bright yellow clunker with a cassette player and one blue door, get ready to embrace the "inbetween."
The Inbetweeners is based on the critically acclaimed award-winning British series, and was adapted for the U.S. by Brad Copeland (Arrested Development, My Name is Earl). The pilot was directed by indie filmmaker-writer-director Taika Waititi (Flight of the Conchords).
The Inbetweeners stars Joey Pollari as Will McKenzie; Bubba Lewis as Simon Cooper; Zack Pearlman as Jay Cartwright; Mark L. Young as Neil Sutherland and Alex Frnka as Carly D'Amato.
The series is executive produced by Brad Copeland and Aaron Kaplan, along with UK series creators Damon Beesley and Iain Morris. Clay Spencer, Justin Levy and Jennifer Russakoff were the MTV executives in charge.
