The UK is allegedly the number one exporter of TV show formats in the world, some of which have been adaptations, others (Skins) have been shot for shot replicas with an American cast and setting. Another show to be remade into a US version is British comedy hit The Inbetweeners.
Made by MTV, The Inbetweeners debuts in the states this August and a promotional image of the main cast has been released. It shows the US versions of Simon (Bubba Lewis), Will (Joey Pollari), Neil (Mark L Young) and Jay (Zack Pearlman).
The image hasn’t been greeted warmly by loyal fans of the show but it’s slightly harsh to judge on one image. What are your first impressions?
