NBC’s Next Theatre: A Few Good Men

NBC has found its next live show after this year’s “Hairspray.” Marking his first return to the broadcast network since The West Wing, Aaron Sorkin will adapt his stage play turned feature film “A Few Good Men” into a live presentation set to air in 2017. Sorkin will write the teleplay adaptation, which will be based on the original stage version. This is all very old-fashioned — live drama was a staple of TV in the 1950s, and courtroom drama has never really disappeared from the tube. The new “Good Men” will, of course, be much more in motion — Sorkin’s patented “walk and talk.”
