MTV has announced a new sitcom, the British hit “Inbetweeners” the TV network also announced that they have commissioned Brad Copeland, writer of Arrested Development to convert the show into an Americanized version.
The popular Channel 4 comedy is not guaranteed, as the network has only ordered a pilot (standard practice), but if Copeland can give his magic touch to the show, it might just be a hit.
The Inbetweeners is centered around a group of friends who aren’t quite the popular click in school, but they also aren’t the schools nerds, leaving them somewhere inbetween.
According to MTV Executive Vice-President David Janollari:
“The Inbetweeners is one of the best comedies to come out of the UK in years,” while he added, “It’s unique and bold, its approach to contemporary teen coming-of-age stories is universal and simply hilarious, and it will resonate immensely with our core demographic.”
Inbetweeners is ending it’s run after three seasons this year in the UK, but a movie and TV special are also in the works.
