The Inbetweeners, MTV’s adaptation of the praised British series, will premiere on Monday, August 20, at 10:30 PM, following the return of Rob Dyrdek’s Ridiculousness at 10:00 PM. Inbetweeners, a comedic look at a group of teenagers navigating high school and charging into adulthood, was adapted for the U.S. by Brad Copeland who is executive producing the series with Aaron Kaplan, along with UK series creators Damon Beesley and Iain Morris. The pilot was directed by Taika Waititi. Joey Pollari, Bubba Lewis, Zack Pearlman, Mark L. Young and Alex Frnka star.
Deadline.Com reminds us that INBETWEENERS is coming to MTV in a couple of months. No snark from this corner: The British show is awesome, with writing that perfectly captures the excitement and angst we remember from our (admittedly recent) teenage years, and if the U.S. version is 20% as good it’ll be the best thing MTV’s given us since Video Killed the Radio Star.
