News Series Finale of Sorkin's "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" Airs June 28 As news of his next gig — the Broadway-bound staging of his play The Farnsworth Invention — just broke, Aaron Sorkin's latest television series, "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," comes to a close on NBC.

The final episode of "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" airs on NBC at 10 PM (ET). The show premiered on the network Sept. 18, 2006.

A Few Good Men playwright Sorkin penned the behind-the scenes show about a sketch comedy show in the fast-paced vein of his previous hits "Sports Night" and "The West Wing."

Starring in the hour-long show are Matthew Perry (Sexual Perversity in Chicago), Amanda Peet (Barefoot in the Park), Bradley Whitford (A Few Good Men, Three Days of Rain), Sarah Paulson (The Glass Menagerie, Colder Than Here), Steven Weber (The Producers) and Timothy Busfield (A Few Good Men). Nate Corddry (upcoming Villa America at Williamstown Theatre Festival) and D.L. Hughley also co-starred as series regulars.

Evan Handler (Six Degrees of Separation, I Hate Hamlet), Michael Stuhlbarg (The Pillowman, Cabaret), Allison Janney (A View from the Bridge), Eli Wallach (Visiting Mr. Green), Judd Hirsch (I'm Not Rappaport) and Donna Murphy (Wonderful Town) have also appeared.

Next for Sorkin is The Farnsworth Invention, which follows the birth of the television. The drama centers around the race for the patent for the invention of the TV set. The battle pits 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). New York native Sorkin previously penned the plays Removing All Doubt, Hidden in This Picture and Making Movies. Other credits include the screenplay of "Malice," "The American President" and the forthcoming film "Charlie Wilson's War."
