The Inbetweeners has been a comedy success story for E4 with three series being produced between 2008 and 2010, with each series being regularly repeated.
The show features the antics of a group of schoolboys as they encounter bullying, issues with their family lives, problems with school staff and humiliatingly bad sexual encounters.
Along the way, The Inbetweeners has picked up a raft of awards and has gathered an army of fans in the UK and in the countries which broadcast it.
The programme follows the life of Will McKenzie (Simon Bird), who has switched from a public school to join a comprehensive called Rudge Park and is out of his depth.
His lack of social graces and self-awareness help to compound his miserable situation.
However, he quickly falls in with three other outsiders who are Simon Cooper (Joe Thomas), Neil Sutherland (Blake Harrison) and Jay Cartwright (James Buckley).
The series was so successful that the first episode of the third and final series generated E4’s biggest ever audience for an original commission.
After the final series, the producers and cast they would not be making any more but hinted that a film following the boys on their first holiday abroad was in the pipeline.
In time, The Inbetweeners Movie was produced and followed the boys on a holiday to Malia in Greece.
The film is now the UK’s biggest ever grossing comedy of all time.
Plans for another film, set in Australia, and said to be in the pipeline.
The Inbetweeners built up an American audience and later TV bosses there remade the show for their domestic audience with similar characters but this was not as successful and was cancelled after its first run.
The Inbetweeners is broadcast on E4 and regularly repeated, occasionally by Channel 4, with episodes available on 4oD
