The Thick of It was a pilot for a American television comedy in the running for the 2007-2008 season on ABC. The show would have been about the day-to-day lives of a low-level member of the United States Congress and his staff. ABC did not pick up the show for its Fall 2007 schedule.[1] Other networks, including HBO, Showtime and NBC, have expressed interest in the show.[2] In 2009, the show's creator, Armando Iannucci, re-entered talks with HBO about adapting the series.[3]

Based on the British series of the same name, it was developed for American audiences by producers Mitch Hurwirtz and Richard Day, of Arrested Development fame. Original series creator Armando Iannucci had a production credit on the show, but he would not be otherwise involved on a regular basis. The pilot was produced by Sony Pictures TV and BBC Worldwide.
