A COMEDY FOR THE FACEBOOK GENERATION

-The Inbetweeners offers a painfully funny take on the squirming humiliations of teenage life-

Written and created by Damon Beesley and Iain Morris (Peep Show, Flight of the Conchords) and named the best new sitcom of 2008 at the British Comedy Awards, The Inbetweeners offers a painfully funny take on the squirming humiliations of teenage life. It begins with the new kid in town, Will (Simon Bird), who has unwillingly had to move, change schools and, as a result, make new friends. He soon meets Simon (Joe Thomas), Jay (James Buckley) and Neil (Blake Harrison), who are neither that cool nor that credible. Marooned in middle-class suburbia, The Inbetweeners follows the four friends who get drunk too quickly, ride roller coasters and crush on the girl next door. The Inbetweeners premieres Fall 2009.

Will McKenzie is on a bad run. His parents have just divorced, and he has found himself transplanted to a public school in a suburb in outer London. He was previously at a private school, from which he inherited some snobbish tendencies, but his former school also did a good job of preparing him for the world�he's smart, confident, well-read, quick-witted and outspoken. Unfortunately, none of these skills help in the suburban high school where he's landed. In fact, it makes the other kids and teachers deeply suspicious. The harder Will tries to fit in, the more he stands out.

Despite the twin handicaps of being the new kid and carrying an actual briefcase, Will quickly makes new friends. Simon's the first to throw Will a line�reluctantly agreeing to show him around school. He then meets Jay, who's constantly lying about his sexual conquests and daring feats, and Neil, who's really just out to lunch and often the butt of cruel jokes. The four of them will together try to make it through the trials of growing up in middle-class suburbia.

They don't always help the situation when they're together�in fact, they often make situations much worse. Over the course of their first term alone, the boys hall of shame moments include accidentally hitting a disabled girl in the face with a Frisbee, drunkenly puking on a seven-year-old, gate-crashing a funeral cortege, and calling Neil's dad a "bumder," which is equal parts "bender" and "bummer."
