We continue our weekend TV show preview with a look at the new NBC series, Outsourced!
Written by Meg M.
NBC’s latest Thursday night comedy, Outsourced, is adapted from the 2006 romantic comedy of the same name. Outsourced tells the story of Todd Dempsey, a 25-year-old man who works for an-American company making novelties. That is, until the call center is outsourced to India, and Todd is moved there to manage a group of less-than-enthusiastic Indian employees. Very quickly, he learns that he must teach his staff about America in order to increase sales and stay competitive with other American managers.
From what we’ve seen of NBC’s previews of the comedy, it seems like the show has the potential to be funny once it finds its groove. My only concern is that the writers will focus on (in my opinion) not-at-all-funny racial jokes that will be read as offensive rather than hilarious. Will NBC also experience fall-out for moving Outsourced into the timeslot previously held by the popular comedy, 30 Rock?
Check out the preview below and share your thoughts with us in the comment section. Tune in to Outsourced on Thursdays this Fall at 9:30 pm on NBC.
