Add "The West Wing" to the list of TV reunions in the age of coronavirus, but this time, they're coming together for a specific cause: To benefit Michelle Obama's voter-participation organization When We All Vote by staging an episode for the streaming service HBO Max.

According to HBO Max, the event -- which will be shot in a Los Angeles theater over several days in October -- will be directed by Thomas Schlamme, who masterminded the White House drama's walk-and-talk style. The program is expected to air on an as-yet-unspecified date prior to the election in November.

"The West Wing" aired on NBC but was produced by Warner Bros. Television, which, like CNN, is a unit of WarnerMedia, which will make a donation to When We All Vote in conjunction with the effort. When We All Vote is a nonprofit organization, created to inspire increased voter participation in every election.

Originally broadcast in 2002, the episode focuses on a tense moment in US-Chinese relations over Taiwan, while Whitford's character, Josh, worries about a small town in New Hampshire whose voting results are believed to predict who will win the state's primary.

I’d support this endeavour financially if the work was called “When we all GO AWAY”


Thank goodness. With elections on the horizon I depend entirely on lectures from actors, assorted ne'er-do-wells and other so-called celebrities to set me straight. Otherwise the job falls to Mrs. Dyer, and she's busy. c.c. MichelleObama and SorkItUp
