Studio 60 complete series coming to DVD this fall
Just in time for tomorrow's series finale on NBC at 10pm comes this announcement from Warner Home Video that they will release Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip - The Complete Series on October 16.
The set will not only include all 22 episodes from it's first and only season, but there will be a new behind the scenes featurette and episode commentaries by creator Aaron Sorkin and director Thomas Schlamme (hopefully cast members will join in too).
This is good news for fans. I still think this show deserves a second season, but it's great that it got one full season to play out the story (and also confuse critics who predicted its immediate cancellation early in the season). The show started off well, had a couple of truly terible episodes in the middle, but has been finishing strongly the past few weeks. I'm going to miss this show. There's nothing else quite llike it on TV right now. Hopefully the roller coaster ride didn't sour Sorkin to television and we'll see something else from him in a couple of years.
