About the show

Will, Simon, Jay and Neil aren’t losers. They aren’t popular either. Not yet. They exist somewhere in the middle. Just four friends plotting a course through the awkward and often humiliating journey of being a teenager. Finding strength in their shared shortcomings… mostly by mocking each other. Because that’s what friends are for.

Based on the hit British series, The Inbetweeners is a show about the days you never forget. An authentic peek at a group of teenagers charging into adulthood the way we all do… by taking one step forward and three steps back.

The Pilot: First Day
