Finally, after years of television shows about doctors, lawyers, cops, and criminals, IT workers finally get their due. News.com reports+TV+comedy+to+premiere+online+in+U.K./2100-1026_3-6027616.html that Channel Four in the UK is set to air “The IT Crowd” a comedy about a “dysfunctional IT department.” Of course, this means that in a few years, we’ll have our own American version on NBC.
Now the real question is when will the networks have the guts to present a series about… chemical engineers. Just imagine the suspense as the handsome ChE works feverishly to complete a McCabe-Thiele diagram in time to save the day. I won’t even get into the season-ending cliffhanger where he calculates the tortuosity of a packed bed.
