In a recent interview with FilmStew, Aaron Sorkin complained about the less-than-cheerleading coverage of "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" by writers at the Times' Calendar section. He named Maria Elena Fernandez and Scott Collins, along with a Christmas Day piece by Deborah Netburn on Hollywood comedy writers ragging on the show. "She interviewed [a member of the Los Angeles improv group] Employee of the Month, and if you look at their web site, you'll find that most of them are unemployed," Sorkin whines. "And we were nominated for a Writer's Guild Award as well.”
Update: Not so much "intervew" as the FilmStew writer happened to be standing in a gaggle of a journalists brought in to chat with Sorkin. Here's another take on the session.
