“The West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin said Monday that a reboot of the show remains a possibility, but only if he "can get a good idea."
Sorkin said during an appearance on ABC's "The View" that he and the cast of the political drama have dinner together about once every three months.
He added that a reboot is something they would "love to do."
"But we're all so very protective of the memory of the show and so I don’t want it to be a Brady Bunch reunion. If I can get a good idea, which is something that doesn’t happen very often, then I’ll do it," he said.
“I’m not slamming the door on it," Sorkin added.
