Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip
Saturday 8th December 2007
From the pen of multiple Emmy Award-winner Aaron Sorkin (West Wing, A Few Good Men) comes the lightening fast, razor sharp new drama Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip which tackles the rarely seen world of network television.
When the beleaguered executive producer of a long-running late-night sketch-comedy series interrupts the live broadcast and has a "Network" moment on the air, the industry, the media and the viewers are galvanized. Into this melee steps shrewd and self-confident network entertainment chief Jordan McDeere, who squares off against the chairman and rehires a brilliant but unpredictable writer/producer team - which had left the show years ago under a cloud of controversy - to bring the show back from the brink.
This provocative, highly anticipated comedic drama literally goes behind the scenes to expose the politics, personalities and pandemonium of producing a flagship series on a major television network.
Released on DVD on 21st January 2008 by Warner Home Video it features an all-star cast led by Matthew Perry (Friends) and Bradley Whitford (West Wing). This much anticipated series received almost wall-to-wall acclaim from critics as well as pulling in big audiences on More4. The impressive ensemble cast is augmented by star-studded cameo appearances from actors including Masi Oka (Heroes), Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls), Rob Reiner (A Few Good Men) and Allison Janney (West Wing) plus musicians Sting, Macy Gray and Sheryl Crow.
As well as all twenty two episodes, the Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip DVD includes these insightful special features:
- Episode commentary (Pilot) by Aaron Sorkin & Thomas Schlamme
- In Depth: The Evolution of Studio 60 featurette
- None or TBC
