The IT Crowd goes west

Will they know it's a comedy?

Cult geek comedy The IT Crowd, has been sold to a US cable channel and the scripts for the third series have been delivered to producers.

Series creator Graham Linehan admitted on his blog that he'd cut the deadline a bit fine and so could do with some help in making the series look and feel sufficiently geeky. He said he wants suggestions for "posters, comics, fanzines, T-shirts… anything you’ve seen in the last few months that you think is pretty cool or captures the spirit of the show or a particular character". Lineham said he wanted the characters' IT dungeon to look like “a cross between a comics shop and the Batcave”.

The post has already received a bunch of comments and suggestions including offers of freebies from the Debian project leader and someone recommending Reg T-shirts - we've got the marketing boys on the case.

Earlier this week it was announced that the first three series of The IT Crowd, along with Modern Toss and science programme parody Look Around You, have been sold to US cable network the Independent Film Channel.

US broadcasts of The IT Crowd start on 29 September. ®
