Santa Monica, CA (July 16, 2012)— On the heels of unveiling an exclusive first look for fans at Comic-Con last Thursday, July 12, MTV is releasing the official trailer from the all-new scripted comedy series “The Inbetweeners.” Click here to check it out.  “The Inbetweeners” premieres Monday, August 20 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, following the return of Rob Dyrdek’s hit series “Ridiculousness” at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

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 are the MTV executives in charge.

    I kind of like the direction MTV is going in with scripted shows, but I just wish they’d find room for actual music–videos, performances, etc. They should have a new primetime version of TRL or something, I dunno…

    Why does MTV insist on ruining UK shows? This looks so bad compared to the original.

    If this finds success, then I could see them pairing it with Awkward. for a sort of “awkward high schoolers” comedy block. I love Teen Wolf and Awkward. so I’m going to try this out when it airs.

    meh, still no compelling reason for me to call up Directv and demand that they bring back MTV.. I’d rather my bill stay low… I also like that DTV is working to make it so all the Viacom channels don’t have to be bundled together.. gimme TV Land and Logo, and I’ll be happy..
