The West Wing creator (all all-round genius), Aaron Sorkin has revealed he has come up with an idea as to how the show could return to our screens.
A reboot of the great TV show of all time (in my opinion) has been noted for a while – NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said in the summer he has repeatedly spoken Sorkin about reviving The West Wing; however, each time Sorkin said no.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Sorkin said a West Wing revival would involve “Sterling K. Brown as the president, and there’s some kind of jam, an emergency, a very delicate situation involving the threat of war or something, and [President] Bartlett [played by Martin Sheen], long since retired, is consulted in the way that Bill Clinton used to consult with Nixon.”
Unfortunately, Sorkin hasn’t been able to make it beyond that point because he hasn’t worked out how the rest of the original cast members like Bradley Whitford (Josh) and Allison Janney (CJ) gwt involved.
You know with Sorkin saying he has an idea, NBC saying they’re interested and the cast being willing to return, I can only hope this is finally going to happen. And the sooner the better.
