Wrekin Hill has acquired US rights to Brit hit "The Inbetweeners," (it's brought in over $70 million in the UK) from director Ben Palmer and writers Iain Morris and Damon Beesley. Based on their British TV series (which MTV is adapting for American auds), "The Inbetweeners" stars James Buckley, Blake Harrison, and Joe Thomas.

À la "American Pie," "The Inbetweeners" follows hormone-controlled loser friends trying to find their way through life. The logline/synopsis goes like this; "Step into a world of humiliation and awkward moments as Will, Jay, Simon and Neil go on their first vacation to Greece in search of high times and wild sex - with no parents, no teachers, no money, and little to no chance with the ladies."

Christopher Young produced, while Channel 4's Shane Allen executive produced with Beesley and Morris. Wrekin Hill plans to release theatrically in the U.S. in late spring 2012.
