The West Wing is a one-hour drama that aired on NBC from September 22, 1999 to May 14, 2006. It is set in Washington, D.C., and follows the fictional Democratic President Josiah “Jed” Bartlet (played by Martin Sheen) and his senior West Wing staff behind-the-scenes during political and personal issues through two terms of office. The creator, Aaron Sorkin, was the lead writer for almost all of the episodes in the first four seasons, working with fellow executive producers Thomas Schlamme and John Wells. The West Wing is known for its quick dialogue and shots of staff walking and talking through the hallways of the White House—known as “walk and talks.” The series won 26 Emmy Awards and 3 Golden Globes.
