US Version of British Hit ‘IT Crowd’ On NBC Mid Season

US version of British hit show IT CrowdI’ve said before that I’m a big fan of the British TV series ‘IT Crowd’, a show about two nerds surrounded by non tech supervisors in an equally tech illiterate company. Well in the grand tradition of British television programming migrating across the pond to the US shores, the IT Crowd has been picked up at a mid season series on NBC. Not h best of situations for a TV show but at least it will be in the air. The cast will include two US actors, Joel McHale ("The Soup") and Jessica St. Clair ("For Your Consideration") and an original member of the British series Richard Ayoade. I’m hoping that that spark of the original show will be carried over with Ayoade, if not this will crash and burn like the US adaptation of "Ad Fab" did.
