'Outsourced' the Movie, Not the TV Show Coming Soon

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 3rd 2010 9:00AM
'Outsourced,' one of what seems to be many Indian-infused situation comedies inspired by the wild success of 'Slumdog Millionaire,' actually came to a theater near you long before NBC picked up the pilot.

The movie as well as the TV show is based on an American who finds himself running a customer service department for a novelty company. The trailer included below actually gave me a couple of good chuckles and some hope that NBC isn't picking up its one-millionth 'The Office' clone.

That head bob thing at the end -- LOL. That's my dominant memory of that country.

My dad's from there. He said when he first emigrated to the West, he did that once when he was asked a question by some official. (It apparently has a meaning similar to "whatever.") The person asking the question had to follow up with, "Is that a 'yes' or a 'no'?"

I understand Parks and Recreation, but do you consider 30 Rock to be an Office clone?
