Editor's NoteWEST 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.

Customer Reviews of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip-Complete Series
Aaron Sorkin and this cast deliver a heartfelt lau1/20/2015
I recommend Studio 60.. to anyone that's a fan of fast paced, quick witted dialogue and characters you can relate to. I'm a huge Sorkin fan and I can't believe this show only lasted one season. I also gained some respect for Matthew Perry whose performance here is the best I've seen from him.

It's sad that this show only lasted one season. It's classic Aaron Sorkin. Great combination of drama, humor and incredibly sharp dialogue. Very nice packaging, compact yet sturdy. Episode guide on each of the inside sleeves makes it easy to find the show you want.
I love this series! The box set is small and convienant unlike like many that are bulky. This is one of the best written (and acted) TV series I've ever seen. I think if they had given it another season it would've caught on. Well worth the money to buy the entire series.
Great show but to smart for the average viewer1/21/2009
In a time of reality tv shows, Studio 60 came along and challenged viewers to follow the smart story lines. This show was as well written as West Wing but the show failed becuase the audience looking for slapstick sitcoms and bimbos in bathing suits eating insects couldn't follow the plot.
God, I'm going to miss this show!9/6/2007
I loved this show, despite every attempt by NBC to make me dump it when they dumped it. Thanks to Tivo, I've seen every show, I've followed every character, worrying how their network would make changes to their show. I never got into West Wing, but this show made me appreciate how great an actor Matthew Perry is, and how hard it must be to stand up to a network when you have created a show that you've poured your soul into. Good luck Aaron Sorkin- I hope your next project is better appreciated then this one was. I hope that this might live again on another network or cable channel- it would be worth it.
