"I am pleased to show our support for this outstanding and ambitious effort from executive producers Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme," Reilly said in a news release. "From the start, they have delivered the superb show that we wanted. The critical support has been rock-solid and there is a passionate core audience. We can't wait for what's going to come in the remainder of the season."

The series follows the behind-the-scenes production of a late night sketch comedy series suggestive of NBC's long-running hit, "Saturday Night Live."
