[ # ] West Wing gets a special benefit episode on HBO Max
August 25th, 2020 under Dulé Hill, HBO Max, Rob Lowe


While we are still waiting for the Friends unscripted reunion to happen on HBO Max, the streaming service announced that they are staging another reunion. The cast of West Wing will reunite to reenact the Hartsfield’s Landing episode.

The 2002 episode is described as, “Bartlet engages both Sam and Toby in intricate chess matches that mirror the wily game of brinkmanship that Bartlet is playing with the Chinese, who are conducting war games in the Taiwan Strait.”

Aaron Sorkin, who created the legendary series, will direct Rob Lowe, Dulé Hill, Allison Janney, Janel Moloney, Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, and Martin Sheen. They will film it over a few days as the actors perform the script at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles in early October.

The press release does not say when it will start streaming, but it will be before the election. That is because the performance is benefitting Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote. The nonprofit wants to inspire increased voting participation.

I would not be surprised that if this does well, the series we might get a West Wing revival. One of them could be the President of the United States now. Who do you think would have the job?
