Moss and Roy, the two technicians, are portrayed as socially inept geeks. Despite the company's utter dependence on their services, they are despised by the rest of the staff. Jen, the newest member of the team, is hopelessly non-technical, despite claiming on her CV that she has "a lot of experience with computers."
The IT Crowd
is a BAFTA-nominated British sitcom. Two series of six episodes each have been producedby BBC's Channel 4. While a success in the U.K., NBC's American version has a more skeptical future. Richard Ayoade reprises his role as Maurice Moss. NBC has the show scheduled as a midseason replacement. Both show versions focus on the shenanigans of the three-strong IT support team. It makes the list for being the first IT dedicated sitcom.
