The West Wing
Hit US series The West Wing is set to return for 3 further seasons, following talks between the show’s makers Warner Brothers and NBC.
Under the deal, NBC would pay Warner Bros up to $7m (£4.5m) an episode- roughly triple the $2m it currently pays per episode.
By comparison, NBC was reportedly paying $13m per episode for the medical drama ER during the show’s peak.
Officials at both Warner Bros and NBC declined to comment.
