My neighbor just brought down my mail, including last week's Entertainment Weekly. I swear I hadn't seen it when I wrote this comment earlier this morning--much less when I wrote this blog months ago.
According to EW, "Sorkin is mulling over the idea of a TV drama that takes a behind-the-scenes look at a cable news program (think: Keith Olbermann on MSNBC). A rep for Sorkin declined to comment, but the big guy himself acknowledged (appropriately enough, on his Facebook page) that he misses TV and hopes to pen a pilot soon.
"'The hour drama isn't dead,' he writes. 'It may have temporarily moved to cable, but if you build it, they'll still come.'"
Uh, I'm dying of joy. This is all very speculative, but this is exactly what I've been calling for for almost two years.
