Winner of a phenomenal 9 Emmy Awards, this highly provocative and sophisticated political drama is written and created by Aaron Sorkin (The American President, Malice, A Few Good Men) and produced by the acclaimed John Wells (ER, The Peacemaker). THE WEST WING features an outstanding ensemble cast.
Each one-hour episode provides a glimpse into the inner workings of the Oval Office as seen through the eyes of its eclectic group of frenzied staffers led by President Josiah Bartlet (Martin Sheen). Pacing the West Wing morning, noon and night, Bartlet’s loyal group strive to keep press and the public informed at every call. The street smart Leo McGarry (Spencer) is the President’s chief of staff and his closest ally and confident. The highly regarded strategist, Josh Lyman acts as the Deputy Chief of Staff and is famed for speaking his mind. The cool and competent Press sectretary CJ Cregg (Janney) spends her time deflecting awkward press questions alongside her cynical and sleepless Communications Director Toby Zeigler (Schiff). They are assisted by the charismatic political animal Sam Seaborn (Lowe), the quickest wordsmith in the West Wing.
The combined power of this diverse elite are united during frequent national and global crisis within the most pressurised place on earth – THE WEST WING.
