Experience the inner workings of the White House in this innovative, multi-award-winning drama series created by Emmy winner Aaron Sorkin (Sports Night). Martin Sheen, as President Bartlet, continues to leads an acclaimed ensemble cast.
Entering its fifth season with a total of 24 Emmys, The West Wing begins as the President — and the nation — faces the traumatic kidnapping of his youngest daughter, and that it may be the result of his controversial political actions. As the President steps down temporarily, handing executive powers to the Speaker of the House (John Goodman), the White House is overrun with rivals. This season features the 100th episode, written by acclaimed novelist John Sacret Young; a killer tornado in Oklahoma; and a visit to the Gaza Strip.
Notable recurring guest stars this season include Timothy Busfield, Lily Tomlin, Mary-Louise Parker, Matthew Perry, Marlee Matlin, Mary McCormack, Jesse Bradford, William Devane, Annabeth Gish and Anna Deveare Smith.
