Not many IT professionals consider outsourcing a laughing matter. Yet NBC is playing it for laughs with "Outsourced," a show slated for the fall TV lineup that's described as "a comedy where the Midwest meets the exotic East in a hilarious culture clash."
Of course, companies outsourcing work to India and other offshore locales aren't amused by culture clashes, as they are one of the factors that can derail outsourcing initiatives.
Based on this promotional clip for the series on Hulu, it looks as if "Outsourced" has some funny moments. But it also looks as if there are some gags that might insult Indians and Americans alike.
