IT Crowd writers to develop other projects for NBC

by Adam Finley, posted May 11th 2007 11:41AM

NBCJoe Wiseman and Joe Port the two writers behind the upcoming NBC pilot The IT Crowd (based on the British series of the same name) have signed a deal with NBC Universal that will allow them to develop other projects for the network. The two men have previously written for series including Son of the Beach and Just Shoot Me.

David Guarascio and Moses Port (Joe's brother) will serve as executive producers on The IT Crowd. The original British series centers on three IT workers who are generally despised by the rest of the workers at Reynholm Industries in London and yet are crucial to keeping the company running smoothly. The Channel 4 series was quite a success across the pond, so naturally NBC wants to try and duplicate that success here.

Joel McHale is very funny on "The Soup." I hope this gets picked up and he gets to do both gigs.

the second season is currently filming.

i disagree that they are essential considering their most popular solution is "have you turned it on" or "is it plugged in?"

its a great show and i look forward to it coming back.

So, what happened to IT Crowd in the UK?
I found the first season, but afterwards, never heart of it again. Still on the air?
