Graham Linehan has revealed he is interested in working on a spinoff of The IT Crowd focusing on Douglas Reynholm.
In an interview with Radio Times, Linehan – who also created Father Ted and Black Books – spoke of his desire to work again with Matt Berry.
“I’d really love to do a Douglas spinoff of The IT Crowd. I could easily spend an hour, or half an hour, with Douglas. He’s my favourite way of making fun of people that I really loathe, like Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump.
“I basically just have happen to him all the things that I’d love to happen to them, and it’s basically a really enjoyable process.”
Linehan also spoke of his admiration for Matt Berry, who plays Reynholm.
“Matt is one of my favourite people to work with. He’s just got funny bones, and he’s got the most extraordinary voice. This is just a half-formed thing at the moment, and also I’ve got to wait and see if Matt would be interested in revisiting the character.”
“At the moment I’m happy to watch him in Toast and he’s obviously carving out a new role for himself as a writer and star as well, so I’ll stay out of the way at the moment and pounce when he’s taking a rest.”
Berry has recently starred in Toast of London. The IT Crowd had it’s final episode in 2013.
