Aaron Benjamin Sorkin is an American screenwriter, producer and playwright. Sorkin’s big break came when his stage play A Few Good Men caught the attention of Hollywood producer David Brown, who bought the film rights before the play even premiered.
In the mid-1990s he worked as a script doctor on films such as Schindler’s List and Bulworth. His television career began in 1998, when he created the TV comedy series Sports Night for the ABC network. Sports Night’s second season was its last, and in 1999 overlapped with the debut of Sorkin’s next TV series, the multiple Emmy-award-winning political drama The West Wing, this time for the NBC network. In 2006, after a three year hiatus, he returned to television with a dramedy called Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.
