The It Crowd premiered on Channel 4 in 2006 and ran for four seasons, followed by a one off special in 2013. The show takes place in the offices of the fictional Reynholm Industries, and featured a cast that included Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson, and Matt Berry.
NBC originally produced a pilot for a U.S. remake in 2007, with Ayoade starring alongside Joel McHale and Jessica St. Clair, although it failed to move forward. The network took a second stab in 2014, but again the project failed to get off the ground.
In addition to The It Crowd, Linehan’s other credits include Father Ted,
