DESCRIPTION: (from MTV's press release, June 2012) MTV is bringing viewers a summer full of "inbetweeners" - that is, not nerds or jocks, but kids who are smack in the middle of the high school social ladder - with the premiere of the new scripted comedy series "The Inbetweeners" on Monday, August 20 at 10:30 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" will air following the return of Rob Dyrdek's hit series "Ridiculousness" at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, that same night on MTV. "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.
