MTV is on a roll with scripted programming (if you consider two shows a roll), thanks to Awkward. and Teen Wolf. Next up for the former music channel is The Inbetweeners, a U.S. adaptation of the British hit about four teenagers who are manboys—not quite kids but certainly not men.
To get you ready for the series' debut on Monday, August 20, MTV has released the first few minutes of the pilot episode online. Joey Pollari (Disney's Skyrunners) stars as Will McKenzie, a buttoned-up kid who transfers to public school (poor kid) from a stuffy private school. But don't take my word for it, take Will's word in the show's trademark voiceover.

Hey look! It's Brett Gelman (Eagleheart, Go On) as the vice principal! But other than that, I'm not really seeing the charm of Awkward. or the ripped abs of Teen Wolf. Sometimes a sneak preview does wonders for a show, sometimes it doesn't. (Pssst! I don't think this one does!)
