The IT crowd coming to US television

Last year, I downloaded the entire &ldquot;The IT Crows&rdquot; British television show via BitTorrent and watched it after reading numerous recommendations for the show from the various geek sites I visit. Tonight, while catching up on my boingboing reading, I find that the show is coming to the US market on NBC this fall. If you are a geek and haven’t seen this show, you really need to watch it. If you aren’t a geek but ever have to deal with tech support, you might also enjoy the show.

The struggling NBC network is turning to science fiction this fall in a bid to lift ratings and appease advertisers and investors, announcing several new dramas whose story lines range from robotics to time travel.

. . .

Later in the year, NBC will roll out &ldquot;The Lipstick Jungle,&rdquot; based on a best-selling book by &ldquot;Sex and the City&rdquot; writer Candace Bushnell. It will also introduce the &ldquot;IT Crowd,&rdquot; a comedy about misunderstood techies, during the 2007-08 season.

The show is well worth watching. I’ll be watching the US released episodes for sure, even though I’ve already seen all the British versions. (via boingboing)
