What goes on behind the scenes of a nationwide late-night comedy sketch show? Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing, answers that question with a must-see show within a show filled with engaging characters, ear-grabbing dialogue and a Hollywood hive of insider buzz. Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford portray the likable hotshots brought in to revive NBS-TV's sagging flagship comedy series and Amanda Peet plays their savvy boss in episodes exploring the lives and loves of and the make-or-break creative pressures on the show's staff. Panic. Chaos. Fear. Sleep deprivation. Just make sure it's funny by Friday. Because that's when a nation tunes in to Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

This six disc collection includes all 22 episodes!

"...a strong cast, a producer with a proven track record and a clever idea with plenty of legs on it for storylines and tribulations.  Peter Brown, If Magazine
"...defines great television...may just be the smartest thing you'll see on TV...  TheFilmChair.com

Editor's Note
WEST WING creator Aaron Sorkin presents a revealing and very funny look at the backstage workings of a late-night comedy sketch show in STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP. The show (which is named STUDIO 60) is plummeting in the ratings and it looks like the network, NBS, might be about to axe it. In a last ditch attempt to revive STUDIO 60's fortunes, two new writers, Matt Albie (Matthew Perry) and Danny Tripp (Bradley Whitford), are brought on board by the network's new president, Jordan McDeere (Amanda Peet). Everyone involved with the show seems to be suffering from an impending sense of doom, but they have to pull together to get the show ready for its weekly Friday night time slot, providing plenty of laughs in the process. This release includes every episode from the show.

Professional Reviews

Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "The scripts are tight, and the storylines as intricately constructed as they are biting." 02/01/2008 p.146

Uncut
5 stars out of 5 -- "[D]azzling....[A] splendid jeremiad against the timidity and mediocrity of television..." 03/01/2008 p.124

Variety 8 of 10
Despite conventional wisdom that augurs against the success of a TV show about TV, it's hard not to root for "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," a series that weds Aaron Sorkin's crackling dialogue and willingness to tackle big ideas with a beyond-stellar cast...In essence, Sorkin and collaborator Thomas Schlamme have devised a modern-day "Network," and they don't shy away from the analogy but rather hit it straight on, as the legendary producer of "Studio 60" -- a "Saturday Night Live"-type sketch show -- implodes on air with a breathless tirade. Played by Judd Hirsch, he makes like Howard Beale, urging viewers to change channels and saying that in the timeless struggle between art and commerce, "Art is getting its ass kicked"...In the interim, it will be fascinating to see if Sorkin's latest rage against the machine can achieve a balance that doomed anchorman Beale couldn't -- staying just mad enough to keep the audience watching without becoming so crazy as to warrant termination. - Brian Lowry
