MTV Circling The Inbetweeners and Christopher Titus Brings a New Show to Fox
Even though the upfronts for the major networks have concluded, there are still more TV deals being made with new shows at MTV and Fox being lined up. Deadline TV is reporting that MTV is circling an American version of the BBC series The Inbetweeners.
The site reports that the cable network is close to giving a pilot commitment to the new show, with Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, producers of the original series, set to produce. It was said that they are searching for a writer for the pilot.
The series was described as a teen comedy that takes a look at four boys who are in between the popular kids and uncool kids in their high school social system.
Deadline TV is also reporting that comedian Christopher Titus is bringing a new series to Fox which is based off his life. His previous series, Titus, ran on Fox from 2000 to 2002 and was also based off his own life.
This new series will pick up eight years after the Titus series ended, in which Titus goes through a marriage and a divorce. Titus would star as himself, dealing with his new girlfriend and crazy ex-wife. Fox has handed out a script order for the pilot, which Titus is writing with Michael Glouberman.
