There have been rumors that Sorkin would adapt the play for live TV since 2014, but now we know they weren't the results of some sweaty fever dream: Sorkin really will team up with Craig Zadan and Neil Meron - the duo behind The Sound of Music Live!, Peter Pan Live!,The Wiz Live! and Smash (!!!) - to bring A Few Good Men to the small screen.
Sorkin began his career as a playwright, getting his first taste of real success when A Few Good Men premiered on Broadway in 1989. Three years later, he adapted it into a movie starring Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore, and received his first Best Picture Oscar nomination. He's since gone on to win an Oscar (The Social Network), two Golden Globes (The Social Network, Steve Jobs) and five Emmys (The West Wing).
Sorkin is also currently adapting Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird for Broadway.
"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," Sorkin said.
A Few Good Men will premiere in early 2017. Will you watch?
