TV Rewind | Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip: The one that ended too soon


The show’s cancellation after just one year came as a blow. The interpersonal relationships and the difference in their politics gives the show strong headed individuals and it’s impossible to ignore their personalities. The premise of both shows was the same, but the treatment was quite different as 30 Rock was a comedy.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip has only 22 episodes to its name and we can only hope that this deserving show gets a reboot in the age of streaming services. The first and the only season of the show was showered with praise soon after its premiere. The shows were pitched against each other but were both given a go-ahead by NBC. Studio 60 won the ratings war at the end of the year but was cancelled because of its expensive production. Sorkin has always had a loyal audience thus this one had success written all over it, even before the premiere. 30 Rock, however, went on for seven seasons. The producers, actors and the crew working on the show make for the main cast. Advertising

One of the best arcs of the show appears towards the end, in flashbacks, when the two leads are given the task of writing an opening sketch show after 9/11. The characters here are trying to make a comedy show but the treatment of the show is quite different. The show strikes a perfect balance as a workplace drama while also dealing with issues like drug addiction and alcoholism. So, the announcement of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip was met with applause. Sorkin had left The West Wing after the fourth season and his next project was keenly awaited. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip had a stellar cast that was led by Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) and Matthew Perry (F.R.I.EN.D.S.). Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford had great successes behind them when they started work on Studio 60. Despite its cancellation, the show received four Emmy nominations. Advertising

The events of the show take place behind the scenes of a live sketch comedy show, much like Saturday Night Live. The show has a slightly serious tone to it which insists that the creators behind comedy realise the impact they are having on society. The show premiered after The West Wing went off air. Studio 60 was launched in the same year as 30 Rock. Amanda Peet, Sarah Paulson also played important parts on the show that had a huge hype before its premiere. 0
