We’ve already told you how “24” star and exec producer Kiefer Sutherland says the new season of the show, up in January, will “take a strong political” stand. We’re expecting the worst, based on the evidence we’ve already seen about the season’s plot. (The terrorist is played by pale White, gay, non-Muslim Eddie Izzard.)
Now, FOX has announced plans for a new show produced by “24” honcho Joel Surnow. The title says a lot, “NSA Innocent.” The plot is about “an everyman who gets caught up in espionage.” He is “an Everyman who winds up being recruited by the NSA — and forced to spy.” So, is this the ACLU’s and pan-Islamist groups’–like CAIR and ADC–fantasy show? Sure sounds like it.
We hope not, but we’re not holding our breath. The pilot for the show is being co-written by David Ehrman, who has written for “JAG,” among other shows. While promoted as a patriotic series, JAG, in fact, presented a host of PC story lines promoting the Islamic and pan-Arabist agenda, including anti-Semitic episodes questioning the work ethic, loyalty, and patriotism of Jewish U.S. servicemen, attacking Israel, and promoting Islamist leaders roaming the desert as our buds. The show was unkind to Christians, as well.
And, finally, the show was just plain inaccurate. Every single JAG I know, regardless of the military branch, has told me they are never involved in adventurous, globe-trotting investigative secret agent stuff, which the show presented in spades. Instead, they are basically prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
Don’t look for Ehrman to change his tack for “NSA Innocent.” Perhaps it would be better called “ACLUCAIRADC Inaccurate.”
