Is a West Wing reboot coming? Star Richard Schiff has divulged some ideas with creator Aaron Sorkin, per EW:
“I know a lot,” replied Schiff, who played curmudgeonly White House communications director Toby Ziegler. “No, it’s not necessarily coming. And I don’t know in what form it’s coming but I did have a particular idea that I spoke with Aaron about, and to Tommy [Schlamme] about, and to Peter Roth about. And I love my idea, I don’t know if that’s going to happen.”
Schiff is very confident in his idea, which might involve changing the show’s setting, and says that Sorkin himself liked it “a lot.” “I don’t think a West Wing reboot in the White House makes any kind of sense right now. So I think some other form of it,” said Schiff, adding that this his idea is “good” and that he would reprise his role if this ever happened.
NBC chief Robert Greenblatt said earlier this week of West Wing‘s revival prospects:
“I keep saying to him, ‘Do you want to do The West Wing again, wouldn’t it be great to do it?’ He says, ‘You know I love that show and some day I’d love to revisit it, but it’s not going to happen right now.’
