MTV Sets Inbetweeners Summer Premiere DateMTV has set a Monday, August 20th premiere date for the comedy series The Inbetweeners. The scripted series follows ‘inbetweeners’ – kids in the middle of the high school social ladder – and is based on the critically acclaimed British series. Brad Copeland (Arrested Development) adapted the series for the US, with Flight of the Conchords‘ writer/director Taika Waititi directing the pilot.
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 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.”
