NBC’s ‘Outsourced’ = ‘The Office’ In India

Monday, May 10 by

Do you like "The Office"? Do you like Indians (if you are Indian, please disregard)? Then you’re gonna love the new sitcom, "Outsourced," which premieres on NBC this fall.

Based on the 2006 romantic comedy by the same name, the show follows the exploits of an American manager, played by Ben Rappaport, who is put in charge of a recently outsourced call center in India. According to Deadline Hollywood, the show is billed as “the Midwest meets the exotic East in a hilarious culture clash.”

Wait, someone from the Midwest traveling abroad? Outrageous!

I haven’t been this psyched about a fish-out-of-water cultural comedy since a certain street-smart jive-talking American teamed up with a lovable Engrish-speaking Asian to bring down an international conspiracy. Of course, I’m taking about Brett Ratner’s The Killing Fields.
