The I.T. Crowd

The picture below might look somehow familiar to viewers of British sitcoms. Familiar, yet a bit different. 

In 2007, NBC put together its own version of the British sitcom The I.T. Crowd, complete with the hilarious Richard Ayoade playing the eccentric "Moss", imported from the British version. Rounding out the cast were Jennifer St. Clair, Joel McHale and Rocky Carroll.

The happiness of the cast, however, was short lived. Despite grandly announcing that the show had a spot on the Fall schedule, NBC quietly killed the show before filming any episodes. The success of The Big Bang Theory has inspired NBC to give this project another chance with an as of yet unannounced cast.
