US Version Of The Inbetweeners

MTV US have ordered a 12 episode adaptation of Channel 4’s sitcom The Inbetweeners.

The US version of the show, hot on the heels of an American version of Skins, will star Bubba Lewis, Joey Pollari, Zack Pearlman and Mark L Young as four, awkward, sex-mad high school students.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, MTV’s head of programming David Janollari said: “It’s got an incredibly strong and authentic young voice. We were really successful in adapting it for our audience and making it sound like a quintessentially American suburban experience.”

Will The Inbetweeners humour translate well over the pond? We’ve never heard an American tell a ‘your mum’ joke yet…
