The It Crowd getting a U.S. remake at NBC

NBC is hoping it will be third time lucky in its efforts to remake the British sitcom The It Crowd for American audiences, with Variety reporting that the network has tapped original series creator Graham Linehan to write and executive produce a reimagining of the cult show.

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,

Biff Review: ‘Crash Pad’ Blatantly Reinforces Stereotypes of Masculinity

Morgan (Christina Applegate) is drowning in a marriage on the rocks. Both her career and her husband’s (Thomas Haden Church’s Grady) are booming — the time allotted to spend together often earmarked for something else. So they’ve drifted apart over the last fifteen years. Their sex life is non-existent and he’s away on business trips that “run long” more often than not. Why wouldn’t she assume he was therefore cheating on her? No reason besides a level of trust that appears non-existent in a day and age where the worst is usually believed and proven true. And since he’s always been a “man’s man” brute with toxic edges she’s sought to smooth out, why not embark on some cheating herself with the embodiment of everything he isn’t?

Enter Stensland (Domhnall Gleeson), an Irish ex-pat caught within a self-diagnosed “early life crisis” who
