    In the early 70s, about a year after "M*A*S*H" started its run, CBS had a comedy called "Roll Out!" that focused on a largly African American WWII unit. I haven't seen it, (mainly because I wasnt born yet ), but archived reviews of the day seem to have been favorable, and it was mainly canceled after only a few episodes because of a killer Friday Night time slot. Seems like the kind of out of the ordinary show TVLand would have shown in its early glory days, maybe some collecter has episodes somewhere on the 'net.
