Check out this parody of the Aaron Sorkin series “Studio 60,” called “Studio 6A” – with Liev Schreiber playing Conan O’Brien.
It lampoons the pedantry, self-importance and torqued melodrama of Sorkin’s “The West Wing” (and, I’m guessing, “Studio 60,” but I’m not sure – I never saw it. Having to tolerate Brad Whitford every time I watch one of my favourite moves, “Kate & Leopold,” is about all I can take of him).
I was reminded of a joke “30 Rock” creator Tina Fey made recently at a public appearance. Referring to her outfit, she cracked “I hear Aaron Sorkin is in Los Angeles wearing the same dress - but longer, and not funny.”
“30 Rock” has been renewed for a second season. The future of “Studio 60” is uncertain. It has been pulled from NBC’s schedule, its timeslot filled by the “Black Donnellys” and “The Real Wedding Crashers.”
