SORKIN CONSIDERING NEW SERIES IDEA

From Entertainment Weekly:
Word is that Sorkin is mulling over the idea of a new TV drama that takes a behind-the-scenes look at a cable news program (think: Keith Olbermann's show on MSNBC).
Yes. That would be good. That would be perfect. It would let Sorkin get all Sorkiny on issues like he likes to do and actually be in a place to do it. Not, like...say a late night sketch show in LA.

And since he did Sports Night, in which Josh Charles played a character not entirely unlike Keith Olbermann, he should get Charles (he's not really doing anything) and get him to play Dan Rydell again.

He should totally build a Sorkinverse. He's come close. West Wing did vaguely reference The American President once ot twice. And Studio 60 namechecked the law firm that Sam Seaborn worked for.

And BTW, tickets are still available for Mastermind, next Saturday. They are only available online in advance, so go click, get, and see you there.
