Comic Misunderstanding – A conversation with Graham Linehan (IT Crowd)

Culture & Arts
re:publica 2013

Description: 

Graham Linehan loves nerds. Whether they turn up dressed in priest's clothes in his TV series "Father Ted", or as grumpy book store owners in "Black Books", specialized and lovable pigheaded fellows in all their oddity seem to be the british author's focus of attention. In his conversation with Linehan, re:publica's co-founder Johnny Haeusler will try to concentrate on "The IT Crowd" though, Graham Linehan's creation that managed to transfer the pop culture of geeks, gamers and netizens to the TV screen like no other series before.

Graham Linehan liebt Nerds. Egal ob sie wie in seiner TV-Serie "Father Ted" im Priestergewand oder in "Black Books" als mürrische Buchladeninhaber daher kommen: Spezialisierte, liebenswerte Starrköpfe scheinen es dem britischen Autor in ihrer Eigenartigkeit angetan zu haben. re:publica-Mitgründer Johnny Haeusler wird es im Gespräch mit Graham Linehan jedoch in erster Linie um "The IT Crowd" gehen, jeder Linehan-Kreation, die es wie keine andere geschafft hat, die Popkultur der Geeks, Gamer und Netizens auf den Fernsehbildschirm zu bringen.
