Aaron Sorkin: I'll never write another TV drama again

The legendary screenwriter says that The Newsroom marks his departure from the small screen.

Aaron Sorkin says he will never work in television again as The Newsroom enters its final episodes.


The writer of The West Wing has come under fire for his scripts on the Jeff Daniels-starring show, which airs on Sky Atlantic, and will now concentrate on the big screen.

"I know the whole 'never say never' stuff, but I'm pretty certain I'm about to write my last three episodes of television," Sorkin said in a recent interview.

"I've had much more failure, as traditionally measured, than success in television. I've done four shows and only one of them was The West Wing," added Sorkin, who has also written Sports Night and the poorly received Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip.

Next up for Sorkin is a biopic of Apple founder Steve Jobs, with Danny Boyle set to direct.
