ColorLines Livetweets NBC’s Humorless “Outsourced”

What happens when a show is too self-conscious to talk about race?

Last night the ColorLines crew live-Tweeted the series premiere of NBC’s new show "[Outsourced](," and we weren’t impressed. In short, the show picks up from where the 2006 film left off by following the fictional life of a white American man who’s sent to India to train workers at a call center that’s been outsourced from the states. But it seemed so poorly written that there it was hard to even make fun of over Twitter, but we tried. Take a peak at last night’s conversation.
