LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Producers Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme have assembled an all-star cast for their new NBC project anchored by Matthew Perry and Amanda Peet.

The "Whole Nine Yards" co-stars will join Steven Weber and D.L. Hughley in "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," The Hollywood Reporter said Friday.

The ensemble cast also includes Evan Handler from "Sex and the City," "The Daily Show's" Nathan Corddry, Michael Stuhlbarg of "The Pillowman" and Carlos Jacott of "Fun with Dick and Jane."

"The problem with getting actors of this caliber is that if the show doesn't work, Tommy and I can be pretty sure it was our fault," Sorkin said.

The action takes place behind the scenes of a late-night sketch comedy show.
