News: NBC's USA Version of The IT Crowd to be deleted!

There are confirmed reports that new boss of NBC Ben Silverman doesn't like the ideas behind the import of UK underground hit "The IT Crowd" and has scrapped the request for six episodes to be flimed. Kevin Reilly the previous head of NBC had originally given a green light to the production earlier this year.

The production of the American version of The IT Crowd also hit troubles when the actress playing Jen pulled the plug and to add further fuel to the fire has not been recast.

Is there really any British content that would have not translated to an American audience? Must American's remake everything in their own image? They had hired Richard Ayoade who was born in London to play his role again as Moss...

I'm disappointed to hear this news, I was looking forward to more nerdy fun. But more British IT Crowd will screen sometime in 2008!
