Season 1

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is an American television dramedy created and written by Aaron Sorkin which tackles the contentious, rarely seen world of network television.

The show aired on NBC in the USA from September 18, 2006 to June 28, 2007. It aired in South Africa on M-Net Series on Wednesdays at 20h00, from 31 May - 24 October, 2007.

There are 22 episodes.

Synopsis

The show takes place behind the scenes of a fictional live sketch comedy show (also called Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), whose format is similar to NBC's real life show, Saturday Night Live.

When the beleaguered executive producer of the long-running series interrupts the live broadcast and has a "Network" moment on the air, the industry, the media and the viewers are galvanized.

Into this melee steps shrewd and self-confident network entertainment chief Jordan McDeere, who squares off against the chairman and rehires a brilliant but unpredictable writer/producer team - which had left the show years ago under a cloud of controversy - to bring it back from the brink.

The fictional show-within-a-show is run by head writer Matt Albie and producer/director Danny Tripp.

The drama goes behind the scenes to expose the politics, personalities and pandemonium of producing a flagship series on a major television network.
