Who has created it?

According to Channel 4's press release, "The Inbetweeners 10th Birthday Party (1 x 120’ w/t) was commissioned by Ed Havard, Head of Entertainment at Channel 4 and Tom Beck, Channel 4’s Head of Live Events and Commissioning Editor for Entertainment. It is a Fudge Park and Monkey Kingdom co-production and the Executive Producers for Fudge Park are Damon Beesley, Iain Morris and Simon Wilson, and David Granger and Will Macdonald for Monkey Kingdom."

What else do they say?

Tom Beck, Channel 4’s Head of Live Events and Commissioning Editor for Entertainment said, “Will, Jay, Simon and Neil spent years failing to sneak into the best parties, so I’m very pleased to throw one that they’re definitely invited to. I just hope Will brings his Mum.”

Simon Wilson from Fudge Park added: “We can’t wait to throw The Inbetweeners the 10th Birthday Party they deserve, and we’re thrilled that the original four comedy superstars are joining us as guests of honour.”

Will Macdonald from Monkey Kingdom said: “The love for The Inbetweeners is huge, the kind of love that Jay would boast he’s had many times – big celebrities, millions of viewers and loving fans from across the globe. And it’s so exciting the boys will be back together to feel that love from all those people and enjoy it first-hand. What could possibly go wrong?”
