What goes on behind the scenes of a nationwide late-night comedy sketch show? Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, answers that question with a must-see show within a show filled with engaging characters, ear-grabbing dialogue and a Hollywood hive of insider buzz.
Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford portray the likable hotshots brought in to revive NBS-TV's sagging flagship comedy series and Amanda Peet plays their savvy boss in episodes exploring the lives and loves of - and the make-or-break creative pressures on - the show's staff. Panic. Chaos. Fear. Sleep deprivation. Just make sure it's funny by Friday. Because that's when a nation tunes in to Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.
Tomorrow night is the last new episode of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
. NBC will air the series finale, "What Kind Of Day Has It Been." Note that show creator Aaron Sorkin and show producer Thomas Schlamme have used the same episode title twice before, on the first-season enders both for Sports Night
and for West Wing
, their two previous collaborations.
As Studio 60
draws to a close, Warner Home Video is announcing the October 16th
DVD release of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip - The Complete Series
. Cost is $59.98 SRP for all 22 episodes on 6 discs, plus an all-new behind-the-scenes featurette, along with commentary tracks recorded by Sorkin and Schlamme. Stay tuned for larger box art of this release.
