BBC Comedy and BBC Two has commissioned Afternoons, a new series from The Inbetweeners co-creators, Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, it was announced today.
The series has a working title of Afternoons and follows the mostly off-the-pitch misadventures of three young football players on a fictional Premier Club team. The stories focus on their friendship, and these boys from around the world are far less proficient with women, money and social media than they are at scoring goals.
Shane Allen, Controller of BBC Comedy, said: “Having Iain and Damon back together on a new scripted piece is about as good as it gets in comedy. Their take on what happens off the pitch brims with their skill at creating a gang of instantly recognisable characters, memorable dialogue, deftly tuned plots and excruciating humiliation is never far away.”
Casting will be announced in due course.
