NBC Might Be Getting "Outsourced"

NBC Might Be Getting "Outsourced"

In our second movie-into-TV-series development of the week so far, NBC is developing a series based on the indie comedy Outsourced, to be directed by Ken Kwapis.

The movie, which just came out in limited release in the U.S., is the story of a Seattle call center manager who learns that his entire office is being outsourced to India — and he has to move overseas to train his replacement. It's been described as a workplace version of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and this trailer is pretty cute.

I love that an indie film is getting enough notice to be turned into a series like this, and Kwapis — who directed the first episode of the NBC version of "The Office" — seems like a good choice to oversee the adaptation. Frankly, with all the ways outsourcing has changed our world, I'm a little surprised it hasn't been the subject of a series before. Has anyone seen the movie? And can you imagine watching the series?

That actually looks very interesting and cute (even though saying it's cute sounds sort of like an insult, but whatever...). And the lead guy is the guy from Sex and the City in the episode where Miranda has phone sex with a guy from a law firm in Chicago. Yup, yup, yup. Once you see an actor on that show, you'll never think of them any other way! lol

Based on the trailer alone, this appears to have some real promise as a series. I think it can work.
