Oh, geesh! You'd think they would have learned after how badly they effed up Skins!
MTV has officially picked up a full, 12 episode season of their re-imagining of the UK series The Inbetweeners, which will premiere
most likely in lieu of a second season of Skins in 2012!
The series tells the story of four awkward teenage boys, who will be portrayed this time around by relative unknowns Bubba Lewis, Joey Pollari, Zack Pearlman, and Mark L. Young.
MTV's head of programming David Janollari says:
"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."
Here's hoping this is true!
We'd love to see this, along with Teen Wolf, the new Beavis & Butthead, and I Just Want My Pants Back bring some old-fashioned, decent scripted TV back to the network…but we're not holding our breath!
What do U think?? Will U watch this remake??
