Emmy Award-winning executive producer-writer Aaron Sorkin ("The West Wing") and Emmy Award-winning executive producer-director Thomas Schlamme ("The West Wing") return to television with this crackling take on the drama behind the humor of producing a popular, late-night comedy sketch show, "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip." Sorkin lays bare the backstage politics, romances and delicate balance between creative talent, on-air personalities and network executives in an instant text-messaging world. Prominent are Jordan McDeere (Amanda Peet), a savvy new network entertainment chief who inherits a massive public relations disaster on the series -- even before she starts her first day -- and Matt Albie (Matthew Perry) and Danny Tripp (Bradley Whitford), a brilliant creative team that she wants to resurrect the program. Also playing crucial roles are the sketch comedy series stars Harriet Hayes (Sarah Paulson, Simon Stiles (D.L. Hughley) and Tom Jeter (Nathan Corddry), their normally cool-headed director, Cal Shanley (Timothy Busfield) as well as supreme network honcho Jack Rudolph (Steven Weber).
NOTE: In Canada the episodes aired a day earlier on the Canadian network CTV due to scheduling conflicts. English broadcast dates in this guide are for NBC in the US.
