Much in the same way MTV remade the U.K. series Skins , the cable network has now picked up a 12-episode order of an American remake for the British series, The The Inbetweeners – via EW.com Inbetweeners was greenlighted to pilot in September and stars Joey Pollari, Bubba Lewis, Zack Pearlman and Mark L. Young as "four high school boys who belong to the "inbetweeners" social class -- teens who are not the most cool and popular but not geeky enough to be branded uncool." It's got an incredibly strong and authentic young voice," said MTV's head of programming David Janollari to EW. "We were really successful in adapting it for our audience and making it sound like a quintessentially American suburban experience."

Check out photos from BBC America 's new show The Inbetweeners which premieres on January 25 with back to back episodes at 9pm on BBC America. Following episode will then air on Wednesdays at 9:30pm. This is definitely another great British show that you should give a chance. There are quite a few funny moments. Show Description: It begins with the new kid in town, Will (Simon Bird), who has unwillingly had to move, change schools and, as a result, make new friends. He soon meets Simon (Joe Thomas), Jay (James Buckley) and Neil (Blake Harrison), who are neither that cool nor that credible. Marooned in middle-class suburbia, The Inbetweeners follows the four friends who get drunk too quickly, ride roller coasters and crush on the girl next door. Will McKenzie is on a bad run. His parents have just divorced, and he has found himself transplanted to a public school in a suburb in outer London. He was previously at a private school, from which he inherited some snobbish tendencies, but his former school also did a good job of preparing him for the world he's smart, confident, well-read, quick-witted and outspoken. Unfortunately, none of these skills help in the suburban high school where he's landed. In fact, it makes the other kids and teachers deeply suspicious. The harder Will tries to fit in, the more he stands out. Despite the twin handicaps of being the new kid and carrying an actual briefcase, Will quickly makes new friends. Simon's the first to throw Will a line reluctantly agreeing to show him around school. He then meets Jay, who's constantly lying about his sexual conquests and daring feats, and Neil, who's really just out to lunch and often the butt of cruel jokes. Thefour of them will together try to make it through the trials of growing up in middle-class suburbia. They don't always help the situation when they're together in fact, they often make situations much worse. Over the course of their first term alone, the boys hall of shame moments include accidentally hitting a disabled girl in the face with a Frisbee, drunkenly puking on a seven-year-old, gate-crashing a funeral cortege, and calling Neil's dad a "bumder," which is equal parts "bender" and "bummer."

That's right ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls - although this show is an 18 so you probably shouldn't be watching it at that age - E4 have commissioned season 3 of this classic comedy to air sometime during 2010, probably around April-May as with the other seasons. I have no clues on the season length, although it will probably be 6 episodes again, and there have been no announcement about cast changes or such like either. It has also been announced an Inbetweeners movie is planned, and here comes my insider information [Wikipedia]: "In September 2009, Beesley and Morris confirmed that a film had been comissioned by Film4 and the story will revolve around the four lads going on holiday to Magaluf. The creators also stated that Simon Bird (Will) and Joe Thomas (Simon) had written a script for the film which was said to be "annoyingly funnier" than theirs." So lots to look forward to. Thanks ;)
Just letting everyone know the new season will be starting next week, thursday 2 April on E4 at 10pm. This is such a good show and deserves much higher viewer numbers than it got for its first season. Its a bit like skins the way you can see how real the series is and relates to normal teenagers in comparison to US shows like 90210 or The Hills!!!!
Hi, Not much to say, but I've discovered that the new series is set to begin airing in May 2009. If anyone knows any more details like what day and how many episodes are being made that would be great! Thanks.
The British Sitcom Guide has learnt that E4's first home-grown sitcom, The Inbetweeners, has just been re-commissioned by Channel 4 for a second series. The comedy, which finished on Thursday, is about four teenagers growing up in suburbia. Written by Damon Beesley and Iain Morris, the six-part first series became an instant hit when it made its debut on E4 last month. Having picked up near universal positive reviews from both critics and viewers, it is perhaps unsurprising to hear that Channel 4 are very eager for more episodes. The second series is now being written, with a transmission date planned for 2009. The new episodes will continue to feature stars Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison. Like last time they will be produced and filmed by Morris and Beesley's Bwark Productions. Meanwhile it is believed that the schedulers are currently arranging a terrestrial repeat slot for the first series so those that missed it on E4 get a chance to see the comedy. To find out more about The Inbetweeners and for an exclusive interview with two of the cast, please see our guide to the show. At the time of writing, the entire first series can be watched for free on 4oD. The Inbetweeners has also just been released on DVD (details); extras include audio commentaries, video diaries and a making of documentary.
Ken v Boris, Tories v Labour, and, before the swingometer took centre stage, age versus youth: The Invisibles (BBC One) v The Inbetweeners (E4). At least in this election â despite the spookily similar names â there was one clear winner and no need for a recount, or staying up till all hours in the vain hope that Robert Peston might appear and start squawking about Nick Cleggâs budget plans. (A boyâs gotta find his pleasures where he can.) The loser, the shambolic, hopeless, where-are-the-matchsticks-to-keep-my-eyelids-from-closing-FOREVER loser, was The Invisibles, which finally appeared after weeks of trailers featuring spidery, abseiling figures, implying a drama with the stylistic dash of The Thomas Crown Affair. That, like the drama itself, was a con. Anthony Head and Warren Clarke played Morris and Sid, a pair of past-it cat burglars â legends, we were told, called âThe Invisiblesâ â who apparently were so marvellous in their day that they robbed from royalty. But now, older and slightly rickety, they were trying to go straight in a quiet seaside town. Source:
