John Yoo & Kiefer Sutherland To Host New Fox Show
New York, New York - Excitement is sweeping through the entertainment industry after news of a new FOX program featuring John Yoo and Kiefer Sutherland is released to the public by none other than the head honcho himself, chairman of the board and chief executive officer Rupert Murdoch.
The show is called What's My Crime and is based on novelist Franz Kafka's great work In the Penal Colony. FOX's parent company News Corporation (NWS.A) is telling advertisers that What's My Crime is guaranteed to draw big audiences who are used to the bone crushing overwrought drama of 24 and the comedic stylings of Bill O'Reilly.
Each week the show will take place in a different secret American prison located somewhere in an unnamed foreign dictatorship. At the beginning of the program a hooded detainee will be strapped to a board face down. Then, a series of sharp blades will begin to painfully slice his back, slowly spelling out the crime the Bush Justice Department suspects he has committed. Making this even more fun is the fact that the detainee has never been charged with any crime or even told why he is being held. As the blades cut deeper into the detainee's back the words that are being spelled out should become clearer. If the detainee can guess his suspected offense before he dies, he wins and will be rewarded with a Dennis Miller DVD and a certificate for a free latte at Starbucks.
During the course of the show, John Yoo will provide play-by-play of the proceedings as well as the legal justification for the detainees treatment. Kiefer Sutherland will provide color.
What's My Crime premieres on Monday at 8 PM Eastern time on all FOX channels and is rated PG.
