Aaron Sorkin is coming back to NBC. The West Wing creator and writer’s play A Few Good Men will live broadcast in 2017.

NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt released a statement about the upcoming live broadcast, saying (via USA Today):

“I am thrilled that Aaron Sorkin is coming back to NBC to adapt and produce a live broadcast of his electrifying play A Few Good Men, which seems as timely as ever today. Aaron is one of the most acclaimed theater, television and film authors of our time, and I am pleased that the live event business that we pioneered with musicals is now expanding into other genres and attracting artists of his caliber. I look forward to his collaboration with our ‘A-team’ producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, to bring another exciting piece of live drama to a broad audience.”

Aaron Sorkin also spoke about the broadcast, presumably while walking, saying:

“I’ve been incredibly impressed watching NBC resurrect live musical theater for television and I’m eager to team up with Craig and Neil to help bring live drama back as well.”

Aaron Sorkin’s A Few Good Men is set to air sometime early 2017 on NBC.
