MTV logoMTV is bringing an Americanized version of another hit British teen show to the airwaves.

This time, the boys of 'Inbetweeners' will bring their awkward adventures to American TV screens. According to Entertainment Weekly, MTV ordered a 12-episode season to air early next year. Like it did with 'Skins,' the network has brought original creators Damon Beesly and Iain Morris on board to executive produce the U.S. version.

"It's got an incredibly strong and authentic young voice," said David Janollari, MTV programming head, of 'Inbetweeners.' "We were really successful in adapting it for our audience and making it sound like a quintessentially American suburban experience."

As for MTV's other British teen show adaptation, 'Skins,' the jury's still out. MTV hasn't yet decided if it will bring the show back for a second season.

News Roundup: Ed O'Neill Denies Dissing Jane Lynch, MTV's 'Inbetweeners' Cast and More

Ed O'Neill'Modern Family' patriarch Ed O'Neill said he was misquoted in a recent article that alleged he didn't think Jane Lynch deserved her Emmy for playing Sue Sylvester on the Fox hit 'Glee.'

A TV Guide Canada story earlier this week (which has since been retracted) quoted O'Neill as saying "I love Jane, honestly I do. I'm dying to star in one of Christopher Guest's movies alongside her, but I don't think she should have gotten the Emmy for that part. [Sue Sylvester] is just a one-note character."

However, the actor told Entertainment Weekly, "I never said those words and transcripts of the press conference attest to that fact. ... I absolutely never said, nor do I believe that Jane -- whom I think is an enormous talent -- was undeserving of the award."

The award-winning Inbetweeners is coming to BBC America in 2010.One of the best British comedies you've never heard of is headed to BBC America in early 2010.

The Inbetweeners features a handful of awkward young men constantly stuck, well, "in between" childhood and adulthood, loneliness and popularity, romance and dignity, etc. The electric wit of the show's dialogue helped it knock down "Best New Sitcom of 2008" at the British Comedy Awards.

Written and created by Damon Beesley and Iain Morris (Peep Show, Flight of the Conchords). the show stars Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison as the hopelessly awhward teens struggling through a new school in suburban Britain.
