Rumors were swirling that an FX network TV pilot called It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia was being shot on Ninth Street last weekend, and when we did a little investigation, we discovered the rumors were true. The comedy sounds like a pale Cheers imitation, undoubtedly with bad Philly accents and more stereotypes than an article about cheesesteaks. The plot revolves around a group of friends who own a Philly bar, one of whom reveals he has cancer in the first episode. We can't wait to see where they're going with this one. Then again, maybe we can.So, 9th Street. And supposedly it's in South Philly. That's all I got. From one of the shows, it looks like there's a parking lot down the street from the bar.
FX=trying OUT a new comedy series is a risky proposition!
Philly=always desperate for OUT-of-towners' approval!
Anyone else have an idea?
