THE UPCOMING SPECIAL EPISODE of Graham Linehan's The IT Crowd TV show needs input from people who want a small, non speaking role.
The show will be an hour long - 40 minutes plus ads, we assume - but we don't know when it will be on. According to Linehan it needs photographs and videos of people to use as part of the episode.
It's hard to know what purpose these will serve, but there is an extensive brief available for anyone that wants to give it a go. Still photos need to be taken on a 10MP camera or higher, and compressed, 15 second high resolution videos are preferred.
"We need photos or video of you reacting to seeing an OUTRAGEOUS video on your phone or laptop. It would be really good if the photo can show a famous landmark in the background. Visiting the Eifel Tower/North Pole/Great Wall of China? Take a snap of yourself pretending to look at something really gross on your device with the landmark in the background and BOOM! you're in (with a very good chance of being in) the show," said Linehan in a blog post. "Remember, the video is OUTRAGEOUS. Not gross, really, but shocking."
Linehan confirmed the one-off episode in May, having already revealed that a script had been written in 2012. All of the cast, including Maurice Moss, Roy Trenneman and Jen Barber are expected to appear in the show.

According to reports it will close off the four series' storylines and wrap up the department that made a catchphrase of the question, "Have you tried turning it off and on again?" µ
