SAJAforum's Ankita Rao wrote in June about "Outsourced," a new NBC's show this fall:
A spin-off of the 2006 movie by the same name, the plot follows a jaded salesman, Todd (Ben Rappaport), to India to oversee a call center.
If the movie is indeed a taste-test, “Outsourced” promises to channel a stereotype into a subtle, lively storyline complete with romance and cultural commentary.
The cast is mostly comprised of vaguely recognizable BBC stars, sitcom hoppers and newcomers such as Rizwan Manji, Rebecca Hazlewood, Anisha Nagarajan and Sacha Dhawan.
Writer Robert Borden hails from “The Drew Cary Show”, and director Ken Kwapis tested out his diversity comedy with “The Office”.
The show debuts tonight, as part of the Thursday night 9:30 pm slot, right after "The Office." You can see the trailer below. More on the show at http://www.nbc.com/outsourced.
Many of you weighed in on Ankita's post (more than 50 comments!), without seeing the show. Please watch tonight and post your comments and analysis below.
