IT Crowd Creator Plans Sci-Fi/Comedy Show

Graham Linehan, the creator of beloved British sitcom “The IT Crowd,” is planning a new sci-fi comedy TV series.

Entitled “The Cloud,” the story follows the crew of Cloud Station 13 which is in orbit around Earth. The station is set up to protect the vast amounts of information humanity now hoards on its devices – the majority of which comprises selfies, pictures of kittens and porn.

The disparate group manning the hub are aren’t technical geniuses, a big problem as the largely voice-activated ship is unreliable at best.

Adam Buxton (“The Persuasionists”) is co-creating the sitcom with Lineman. Channel 4 has commissioned a pilot which will shoot this Spring. Buxton, Aisling Be and Jamie Demetriou will star.
