So... this is listed as drama on IMDB, is that accurate?
Jake M. Johnson, New Girl - Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Jonathan Banks, Breaking Bad - Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Michael Cudlitz, Southland - Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
The trailer plays the footage as more of a behind-the-scenes drama than a workplace comedy, so my thought is "yes." Also, as funny as Studio 60 could be, it too was considered a drama with humorous moments, rather than a dark comedy.
Yes, it seems Jane Fonda plays a female version of her ex-husband. That's interesting. LOL
Based on the trailer, this show should be considered a drama series, especially if it airs for 60 minutes per episode. But back when there were news circulating about Sorkin creating a series revolving around behind-the-scenes events of a news program, I read, or probably assumed, that it would be a comedy.
