This new NBC comedy, based on the British series of the same name, centers on two misfits, Roy (Joel McHale) and Moss (Richard Ayoade), who work in the IT department of a large corporation. The two techies are highly skilled at their job but are hardly recognized for their work, thanks to their boss, Denholm (Rocky Carroll), keeping them cooped up in the company basement. However, Jen, their new office manager, provides a beacon of hope for the two. With her social skills, Roy and Moss may finally get the respect they deserve. However, she just happens to also not know a thing about computers - she lied on her resume.
The IT Crowd is produced by FremantleMedia North America in association with Universal Media Studios and distributed by the NBC Television Network. The series has been given a 6 episode initial order.
