U.S. 'IT Crowd' won't be gathering Moss 2nd time around

While IT Crowd series creator/writer, Graham Linehan, has made his best attempt to calm any well-deserved fears by assuring adoring fans through Twitter that “we will get it right this time” and that it will retain the essence of the original show, Richard Ayoade, who played Moss in the original Channel 4 UK version, will not reprise his role as he did in NBC’s original attempt.

IT Crowd getting the band back together for 2013 special?

Having written both Father Ted and Black Books, it’s no wonder that the Twitter universe hangs on every tweet that creator/writer/director of the IT Crowd creator, Graham Linehan, can conjure up in 140 characters or less.

Dylan Moran – B4 Black Books

Is it bad to admit publicly that I want to hang out with Bernard Black, Manny Bianco and Fran Katzenjammer? Too late now, I guess. But, as the central figures of the Black Books series co-created by Dylan Moran and Graham Linehan, their general disdain for the outside world is oddly intriguing with Black, quite […]

IT Crowd powers down – :(

When the word came down on Friday that the brilliant Graham Linehan comedy, IT Crowd, was coming to an end after four seasons, my first thought was to take the sage advice of either Roy Trenneman (Chris O’Dowd) or Maurice Moss (Richard Ayoade) and try turning it off and on again.

An IT Crowd U.S. remake? Why, grandfather, why?

Well, it has been several weeks since my last rant against U.S. producers trying to re-make British comedy genius. Please don’t insert “But, look at The Office…” here. As I’ve said repeatedly, it’s a short list with The Office, Steptoe and Son and Till Death Do Us Part. Not bad for over 40 years of […]
