The IT Crowd (TV Series 2006–2013) Poster

(2006–2013)

Trivia

Graham Linehan was inspired to create the series after a visit to his home by a PC repair man with questionable interpersonal skills.
Richard Ayoade reprised his role as Moss in the American adaptation of the series. NBC ordered a full season and even began promoting the series for its 2007-2008 season. Although several episodes had been scripted, the chairman for NBC at the time Ben Silverman had the show canceled before filming began as he didn't believe in the show finding success.
On the UK DVD of The IT Crowd, one of the subtitle options comes up in '1337' or 'leet' speak. 1337, based on the term 'elite', is a language of slang predominantly used by gamers and Internet users, and so fits in with the characters and general humour of The IT Crowd.
Schedule conflicts with The Mighty Boosh (2003) allowed Noel Fielding to appear in only one episode in the third season. The explanation for his long-term absence was that Richmond (the character he played) got scurvy.
It is never revealed what Reynholm Industries makes, though "electronic machines" are hinted at throughout, based on Roy and Moss's remarks to colleagues.
Channel 4 put the episodes online one week before they were aired on TV.
Christopher Morris (Denholm Reynholm), who plays father to Matt Berry's (Douglas Reynholm's) character, is less than nine years older than Berry.
Moss has a picture of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (Bless His Noodly Appendages) on his wall.
A fifth series was planned but never came to light, the special 'The internet is coming' was made instead.
