Five-time Emmy-winner Aaron Sorkin, who created "West Wing," ‘Sports Night’ and "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," is planning another TV series, according to TVGuideMagazine.com.

According to the report, Sorkin said, "It’s going to be what turns out to be the third in the trilogy of TV shows that take place behind the scenes of a TV show, but this will be a different kind of TV show. That’s all I can let out of the bag right now."

His shows "Sports Night" and "Studio 60" were also set behind the scenes at TV shows.

Sorkin said he hopes to collaborate with his pal and well-known TV director Tommy Schlamme on the project, as well as work with some of the actors he’s worked with in the past.

  1. I still miss “Sports Night”. It was very well written and acted. Looking forward to the new show.

  2. I think the higher ups were getting pissed that Studio 60 was hitting too close to home for their taste and that’s why they canceled it… They didn’t even give it time to find its audience… And yet My Name Is Earl, The Office and others of that ilk can go on and on forever.

  3. Geez, could it be that Studio 60 was simply a one hour left wing lecture rather than entertainment?
    Can’t wait to be talked down to by Sorkin again.
