If you’re a fan of the hit E4 comedy sitcom or movie ‘The Inbetweeners’, you’ll be pleased to hear that the team behind the show are launching a female version of the series!
The new show will be called ‘Drifters’ and will feature several of the girls who appeared in the Inbetweeners film (Lydia Rose Bewley, who played Jane and became Jay’s girlfriend, Jessica Knappett, who played Lisa and was Neil’s love interest, and Lauren O’Rourke, who played Nicole, Neil’s girlfriend).
‘Drifters’ has been written by Jessica Knappett and it will focus on the lives of three twenty-something friends, Laura (played by Lauren), Bunny (played by Lydia – pictured on the left above) and Meg (played by Jessica – pictured on the right above), who live in Leeds, are stuck in dead-end jobs after graduating from University and are deciding what to do with their lives.
An E4 statement set the mood of the sitcom by writing, “For the ‘Drifter’ girls it’s time to start asking some serious questions: What do they do now? Who are they going to be? And is it ok to shag someone with a sweat problem if you haven’t had sex in twelve months? It’s all about the fear that comes with knowing you should take more responsibility and the excitement that comes with knowing you still don’t really have any at all.”
The series will be shown on Channel 4 and Bob Mortimer has signed up to play Meg’s Dad, Frank. Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, the creators of The Inbetweeners, have also taken on the roles of executive producers.
Iain commented on this new venture, saying, “We’re lucky and delighted to be involved with Jess’s new sitcom. We knew from our time working with her whilst shooting The Inbetweeners Movie that she was hysterically funny, not least because she created the production’s unofficial drinking den, Bar Knappett, in her hotel room.”
Fiona McDermott, Comedy Commissioning Editor, said of the new series, “‘Drifters’ promises to be a really funny sitcom about really funny girls. It’s that simple. Jess is a fab talent and it’s great to be working with her.”
I’m looking forward to it! We’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled for it…
