Heads up confused and misguided teens, here comes another show about being uncomfortable in your own skin.
A scripted comedy series on the heels of “Teen Wolf” and “Awkward,” the upcoming “The Inbetweeners” follows a motley crew of high school friends that are somewhere in the middle of “cool,” and “not cool.”
Though if the trailer is any indication, these dudes are definitely closer aligned to the “uncool” side of the teen social spectrum.
“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,” is how the network is describing it.
“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 show is based on the critically acclaimed award-winning British sitcom of the same name that ran for 2008 to 2010.
And there’s no way it isn't going to be funny as the pilot is being directed by indie filmmaker-writer-director Taika Waititi (“Flight of the Conchords”) and the series is being produced for U.S. audiences by Brad Copeland (“Arrested Development,” and “My Name is Earl”).
Tune in to laugh or empathize… or both, at the same time.
“The Inbetweeners” premieres Monday, August 20 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
