image for Civil War Sitcom Put On Hold
Will It Ever Be Not Too Soon?

ANBC have announced that they are delaying broadcast of their new sitcom "It's Always Sunny In Gettysburg" because they feel 'it's still too soon'.

Filming of the first season, which took place before a live studio audience, was completed last July.

The series, which places the recurring characters of Jake, Thomas and William, Confederate Soldiers, in a trench at Gettysburg during the civil war, and follows their various doomed attempts to escape from the war to avoid certain death under the misguided command of General Richbastard was set to air in JUne this year.

Rather than Union forces, who remain generally unseen, the soldiers nemeses comes in the form of their superior, the above mentioned eccentric slave and land owning General Richbastard who rallies his troops from the safety of his plantation 200 miles from Gettysburg.

An ANBC spokesman said "To be honest we are still unsure who are target audience is, and to be honest, despite their being sitcoms set in Korea (M.A.S.H) and the Second World War (Hogan's Heroes) we feel many American's still probably haven't gotten over the 'War Between The States'.

Make D P Whitehead's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
