C4 orders two new-comedy dramas

Based on teens and paramedics

Channel 4 has ordered two new comedy drama series, including a coming-of-age show dubbed a replacement to the Inbetweeners.

Beaver Falls, which is planned for E4 next summer, follows three British university graduates who land jobs at an elite American summer camp.

The six-part series is being made by Company Pictures, which also produces Skins and Shameless.

The current series of The Inbetweeners is widely expected to be the last as the key characters leave sixth form and go their separate ways; although a movie is in the pipleline about their first summer holiday away.

Channel 4’s other commission is Naked Apes, about three ‘blokish’ paramedics ferrying drunk casualties to accident and emergency in Leeds.

Also expected to air next summer, the comedy-drama is being written by Brian Fillis, who also penned The Curse of Steptoe for BBC4.
