image for NBC Announce Hogan's Heroes in Gauntanamo Concept

Television network NBC have proudly announced the production of its newest sitcom is set to begin next spring.Entitled "Asama's Heroes" the show will use the concept from 60's show Hogan's Heroes which will see inmates regularly escaping the Guantanamo camp to meddle in Western affairs or to visit Fidel Castro in a nearby hospital.

"We've got very high hopes for this one" said excited NBC director Ted Tingwell "It's basically the same format as Hogan's' with the prisoners having a teapot for a radio and sometimes dressing up as women to sneak out of the camp to blow something up" he said.

The shows producers say whilst the show will be choc full of funny gags as they take a look at the more amusing side of terrorism there will also be a message involved which the network hopes will deter younger viewers from joining organisations such as Al Qaida or even the scouts.

"We do one episode where the guys disguised as a scout group sneak out of camp through a tree stump on the outside of the fence" says Mr Tingwell "they then go to a nearby shop to buy some fresh cous cous but things turn a bit sour when the scout leader tries to get too friendly with some of the other troop members"

Although the cast is still set to be announced rumours suggest a heavily made up Matt LeBlanc will take the lead roll as Colonel Abdullah with special guest appearances by Rossanne Barr playing the part of General Burkholter and Jeremy Irons as the no nonsense Major Hockstetter.
