On May 9th, Warner Home Video will be rolling out The West Wing: The Complete Sixth Season.
Viewers will remember season six as "the season of change," when C.J. (Allison Janney) becomes chief of staff, President Bartlet (Martin Sheen) suffers a debilitating attack of multiple sclerosis, and Josh (Bradley Whitford) leaves the White House to run Matt Santos’ (Jimmy Smits) presidential campaign. Even if they’ve never seen an episode, consumers will enjoy watching the behind-the-scenes battle over who will score the Democratic nomination and go up against Republican frontrunner Arnold Vinick (Alan Alda) for President.
The West Wing premiered in the fall of 1999 and follows the challenges and responsibilities of U.S. President Josiah Bartlet and his White House staff. The ensemble cast for the sixth season includes Alan Alda as Senator Arnold Vinick, Stockard Channing as First Lady Abigail Bartlet, Dulé Hill as Charlie Young, Allison Janney as C.J. Cregg, Josh Malina as Will Bailey, Richard Schiff as Toby Ziegler, Martin Sheen as President Josiah Bartlet, Jimmy Smits as Senator Matt Santos, John Spencer as Leo McGarry, and Bradley Whitford as Josh Lyman.
Season six of The West Wing was nominated for five Emmy Awards. The West Wing has previously won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003 along with 20 individual Emmys awarded to the writers, actors, and crew. Moreover, the show holds the record for the most Emmys won by a series in a single season by winning nine during its first season on the air. By winning the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series four years in a row, the show is tied with Hill Street Blues and L.A. Law for most Emmys won in that category. Currently, The West Wing ranks 8th all-time in the number of Emmy Awards won by a series.
The six-disc collector’s set includes all 22 episodes.
