Outsourced, the popular 2006 romantic comedy made by local filmmakers, will soon arrive on the small screen. NBC announced that it has picked up the show for its 2010 fall season. The series pilot, shot earlier this spring, was initially scripted by Seattleites John Jeffcoat and George Wing. Winner of the best film award at the 2007 Seattle International Film Festival, Outsourced is the story of a laid-off Seattle retail manager who travels to India to train his replacement at a call center and falls in love with a fellow employee. “George and I always felt that the show shouldn’t be a carbon copy of the movie,” said Jeffcoat. “We wanted to bring it someplace else, to a modern call center. There are a lot of changes. The comedy is definitely broader than in the movie, so that’s going to be interesting to see how people respond to it.” Ken Kwapis (“The Office”) developed the project and is executive producer for the series, and Ben Rappaport will play the transplanted manager.
