MTV has been red hot in the scripted arena, with buzzy entries such as Teen Wolf and Awkward. And the teen network isn’t just resting on those shows. Next up: The Inbetweeners, a story adapted from a popular British format that follows a group of middling teens in high school. EW has an exclusive first look at the series, via the first two minutes of the pilot, which can be viewed below.
To be more specific, The Inbetweeners chronicles the lives of those kids who aren’t on top or bottom of the social ladder — but the ones who are right in the middle and, yes, may even be more invisible than the lowly nerds. MTV describes the show as such: “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.”
The Inbetweeners premieres Monday, Aug. 20, at 10:30 p.m., following the return of Ridiculousness.
