Life After 60: Aaron Sorkin’s Broadway Move

By FishbowlNY Comment

0628sorkin.jpgLife after Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip for Aaron Sorkin is pretty sweet. Although Studio 60‘s last episode was last night, the ex-West Wing producer’s got a show on Broadway. Continuing on the post-Copenhagen Broadway mini-trend of highbrow shows (Frost/Nixon, we’re looking at you), Sorkin’s The Farnsworth Invention is opening up in November:

The Farnsworth Invention concerns the battle for the patent for the invention of the television set. The race pitted a young genius, Philo T. Farnsworth, who came up with the idea as a high school student, against David Sarnoff, the head of the Radio Corporation of America (RCA).

Apart from writing Farnsworth Invention, Sorkin also penned the script to the upcoming Tom Hanks-Julia Roberts-Philip Seymour Hoffman film Charlie Wilson’s War.
