Series Info

Reviled, thankfully brief sitcom that used Lincoln's White House as a setting for bawdy high jinks. It centered on a fictional journal, penned by a butler to the president, that chronicled farcical goings-on involving the first family.


Critics Consensus: Juvenile, obscene, and overtly outrageous, The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer hits below the belt as it underplays the horrors of American slavery.
