If you’re a "West Wing" fan who’s been missing the show since it signed off more than six years ago - and who hasn’t? - you’ll be happy to know there’s a new episode.
Nine cast members appear in character in a political ad for Bridget Mary McCormack, who’s running for a seat on the Michigan Supreme Court, a non-partisan race. She’s the sister of Mary McCormack, who played Kate Harper on "The West Wing" from 2004-2006.
In addition to Mary McCormack, the four-minute bit features Josh Malina (Will Bailey), Janel Moloney (Donna Moss), Bradley Whitford (Josh Lyman) Richard Schiff (Toby Ziegler), Allison Janey (C.J. Cregg), Melissa Fitzgerald (Carol Fitzpatrick), Martn Sheen (Jed Bartlet) and Lily Tomlin (Deborah Fiderer)
It’s funny. It’s smart. It’s both a send-up of and a tribute to "The West Wing."
It’s pretty great, even if you don’t live in Michigan.
