"West Wing" Season 7 in UK March 10

More4 has also been showing some new clips featuring "West Wing" actors recently.
irishjigger posted at Television Without Pity:
"More4 have a new interview thing...and it's Richard Schiff and Allison Janney on Martin Sheen, it's really sweet!"
and also posted:
"I saw another new one though with just Allison Janney. She talks about how much she loves [Jon] Stewart and The Daily Show. It's really good too."

There is also a clip of Richard Schiff and Allison Janney discussing the special chemistry in the looks they share in character. Richard Schiff says that they had always been sharing intense looks without intending to, when Aaron Sorkin picked up on it and began incorporating it in the show. Richard Schiff goes on to mention how much they enjoy these looks and try to make the most of them. Allison Janney adds that Richard Schiff makes her cry.

From the Guardian:
"Fans of The West Wing have long complained about Channel 4's erratic scheduling of their beloved show, which finally ends with the seventh series.

However, Channel 4 is belatedly doing the right thing with the programme's new berth on digital channel More4, with the seventh series to begin on March 10, immediately after the sixth run ends.

The show will end its seventh and final series on NBC in the US in May, while the 22-part run on More4 will go on until August.

Sky One was actually the first UK broadcaster to transmit The West Wing, running the first series back in 2000.

Channel 4's entertainment service E4 then took over in 2001, broadcasting series two-to-five on Tuesdays at 9pm.

The sixth series moved to E4's sister channel aimed at over-35s, More4, when it launched in October last year, at 9pm on Friday night.

On Channel 4, the show has had an even more peripatetic existence. Series one was broadcast on Thursday nights in 2001, with the second run moved to Sundays the following year.

But after that Channel 4 effectively gave up on the show, dumping series three on Saturday nights and, after a break of more than a year, scheduling the fourth series in a graveyard slot on Friday evenings against Coronation Street from September 2004. The fifth series has yet to see the light of day on Channel 4."

The UK TV Guide through the IMDB confirms that the Season 7 premiere will air on More4 on March 10 at 9PM GMT.

Michele posted in the J/D Talk Yahoo Group:
"In the blurb for "Things Fall Apart" in the new Radio Times published
today it says:

"The final series will follow seamlessly after next week's finale to
series six"

This would indicate that More4 will show the Season 7 premiere March 10.
