Life After 60: Aaron Sorkin’s Broadway Move

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.
