VIDEO: Outsourced's Ben Rappaport Says Series Is Never Mean-Spirited
NBC's new series Outsourced makes a lot of jokes about both American and Indian culture, but series star Ben Rappaport says that it's never in a mean-spirited way.
"We're just trying to tell a story about relatable characters in an office," he says. "[And] put a face to that voice on the other end of the phone."
