NBC Trying To Adapt “The IT Crowd” Again

A decade after the first failed previous attempt with Joel McHale, NBC and Universal Television are taking another crack at adapting iconic British sitcom “The IT Crowd” for the U.S. market.

Original series creator Graham Linehan has been set to write and executive produce a reimagining of the show following the employees in the IT department of a massive corporation.

Patrick Daly and Jon Rolph will also executive produce. Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson, and Matt Berry starred in the original which ran for four seasons and finished with a one-off special in 2013.

This marks NBC’s third attempt, they tried again in 2014 but that didn’t move forward (the 2007 version got as far as a completed pilot).
