Fifteen years ago, Aaron Sorkin’s The West Wing aired for the first time on American television. The show was an idealized view of liberal American politics that invited viewers inside a White House populated by whip-smart, quixotic and impossibly witty people. It confounded the belief that political dramas didn’t work on television, running for seven years and gaining 26 Emmys along the way. With writing, acting and production of a quality then only found in cinemas, The West Wing did for network television what the Sopranos would simultaneously do for cable, elevating the medium to a different level and paving the way for a new golden era of home entertainment.

If they were ever going to relaunch The West Wing, Dule Hill is now over 35 (which means he can run for President) and President Santos’ second term would be over in January of 2015 (he took office in January 2007 in the series’ continuity). If Charlie Young was the President in a retooled series, his wife would be Zoe Bartlet, thus giving a major reason for Martin Sheen’s former President Bartlet to be involved in the show and Presidency. Josh Lyman would be the Vice President (following in the late Leo McGarry’s career trajectory of Chief of Staff to Vice Presidential Candidate). With the “trinity” of Young, Lyman and Bartlet you’d have the core cast right there, and a reason to bring every other series regular back.

Sorkin and NBC, call me! 😉

And c'mon son, you know James Roday has to be his Chief of Staff.
