Studio 60

Thanks to KF, I just caught the pilot episode of Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme’s new TV series, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and after watching it, I’m really looking forward to the series. Studio 60 is a backstage look at an SNL-style variety show, and like other Sorkin series (Sports Night and The West Wing), it’s filled with taut dialogue, interesting characters, and a stellar cast including Bradley Whitford, Matthew Perry, Amanda Peet, and Timothy Busfield.

And, adding just a few more points to the cool quotient, the pilot even namedrops one of my favorite 1970s movies.
