Outsourced Walks a Fine Line Between Funny and Racist — or Does It?

Outsourced

Outsourced hopes to walk a fine line between hilarious and offensive, but can a series about an American expat working in an Indian call center really avoid cultural stereotypes?

"I think where we approach this is certainly not a mean-spirited place," executive producer Robert Broden said.
