The team behind hit teen comedy The Inbetweeners are launching a female spin-off of the show. The show, called Drifters, features three of the stars of the spin-off movie - Lydia Rose Bewley and Jessica Knappett (pictured), who played clubbers Jane and Lisa, and Lauren O'Rourke, who played Neil's girlfriend. The trio play three friends stuck in dead-end jobs in Leeds while they're trying to figure out what to do with their lives. Bob Mortimer will star as one of their fathers in the Channel 4 show, written by Jessica. Iain Morris, one of the creators of The Inbetweeners, is executive producer on Drifters. He said: "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." The Inbetweeners has already inspired a US remake, and the film version - which followed its four main stars on a booze-fuelled holiday in Malia - was a huge cinema hit.
