M*A*S*H

M*A*S*H is an American war comedy-drama television series that aired on CBS from 1972 to 1983.

It was developed by Larry Gelbart as the first original spin-off series adapted from the 1970 feature film MASH, which, in turn, was based on Richard Hooker’s 1968 novel MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors.

The series, which was produced with 20th Century Fox Television for CBS, follows a team of doctors and support staff stationed at the “4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital” in Uijeongbu, South Korea, during the Korean War (1950-1953).
