Description

Welcome to the unique world that is Studio 60. What does it take to make television's longest-running late night live comedy? That's the drama — and the fun — of this smart, fast-paced and star-powered series from the people who brought you The West Wing. Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford are the dynamic duo who've been given reins of the show, with orders to kick up the comedy. Amanda Peet and Steven Weber are the top, behind-the-scenes execs locked in an ongoing tug-of-war for creative direction of the show and the network. D.L. Hughley, Sarah Paulson and Nathan Corddry are the show's talented "Big Three." Timothy Busfield is the cool and calm director. Like it or not, they're all in this together. And the best part is we get to see it all.

My Show is On! My Show is ON!

Welcome back to, or perhaps for the first time, to a world created by Aaron Sorkin. The West Wing, Sports Night, A Few Good Men and The American President are all wonderfully part of this family. Love them or hate them, you know it's Sorkin. Until, that is, we get to Studio 60. With Studio 60 we're thrust into a world of endless possibilities, where the things that you dream might happen can, and things you've never dreamed become real. Studio 60 is the third show to team Sorkin with Thomas Schlamme, again with incredible results. They're a little older now, and you can see that in both the writing and directing. The dialog is still incredibly smart, funny and affecting -- except that now it's not quite so stylized. It's no longer a thing where you can simply listen to three lines of dialog and you know who wrote it. Now it's more like, 30 or 40 seconds. It's a change, for sure, but it's also a step in the right direction. The same thing goes for the walking shots I came to know and love in Sports Night and The West Wing. They're there, but they're not there quite as much, and the show is better for it. As far as the story, I've seen 2 episodes now. It's good, but we're not quite there with what's going on yet. Of course, we're not supposed to be. We're supposed to be playing catch up, and it works. It won't work for a full season, but I also don't expect it to. The characters are real, and they're impactful. Danny, Matt, Jordan, Hariet, Simon, the rest who's names I don't remember. They're fully part of this word, and you don't doubt for a second that they belong. Even the dude from Wings manages to score as the compete a-hole studio exec. In short, the whole cast has me sold. This is long, I know... but I can't say it enough, this show has me by the balls and I've watched both episodes that are available multiple times now. Give this show a shot, I'd say start with Ep 2, but you might be a bit lost if you do, so go for the pilot. It's incredible.

We Asked for Quality, Sorkin Delivers

You know a show is great when you can take two people from previously long-running TV shows and, through means of great writing and direction, make the audience forget that they were ever anywhere but Studio 60. When Bradley Whitford (West Wing) and Matthew Perry (Friends) take the screen it's no longer their well known characters from the afforementioned shows that we see, but rather a producer and writer for a sketch show on the rocks. The dynamic of the cast is convincing and the writing is (of course) great. Aside from Whitford and Perry, Amanda Peet, Steven Weber, Sarah Paulson, Timothy Busfield, and D.L. Hughley make the show pop with amiable, dynamic, three dimensional characters that the audience simply wants to see succeed (except for Weber... who's character is less than likeable, but still convincingly played). In short, this show has, in it's three episode infancy, become one of my favorite shows on air right now!

"You really can't beat Studio 60." - Entertainment Weekly

From the creator of the highly acclaimed shows The West Wing and Sports Night and the movie The American President comes this season's greatest show - Studio 60. Taking from his past his experiences with television, Aaron Sorkin pushes the limits of what TV is all about. Using witty and fast paced dialogue, Sorkin presents the behind the scenes of a major network comedy sketch show (much like SNL). His shows in the past have been hailed as the ultimate workplace comedies/dramas. Replay value: Put it on a constant loop - it's worth it. Studio 60 is where it's at as far as the 06/07 Season is concerned!
