Premise: The celebrated ensemble drama following a U.S. president and his staff as they set public policy and face personal problems in a `parallel universe' (as one of the series' executive producers called it) that can be remarkably similar to the real one. An Emmy juggernaut (four Best Drama awards in its first four seasons) as well as a Peabody winner, `Wing' was the brainchild of writer Aaron Sorkin (`The American President'), who left after the fourth season, when John Wells (`ER') took over.
