The Dirty Dozen

Show Summary

This short lived Fox series followed the World War II exploits of a group of military prisoners turned soldiers. The soldiers were led by the tough as nails Lt. Danko who assigned each squad member a place based on their abilities. The series was shot in Yugoslavia and was canceled after only seven of thirteen episodes were broadcast. Its cancellation was due primarly to poor ratings which were not help by the shows being scheduled opposite the CBS's Vietnam War drama Tour of Duty. Some controversy over the cancellation led to a dispute between Fox and the show's production company MGM/UA. Fox paid only for the seven episodes it broadcast and refused to pay for the other episodes already produced.
