NBC, John Wells Prods. and Warner Bros. TV are close to wrapping up a long-expected deal to renew “The West Wing” for at least one more season. It’s expected NBC will get the show at a substantially reduced license fee vs. what the network had been paying, along with options for future seasons. As for cast renewals, star Martin Sheen is expected to return to the series in some form; whether Jimmy Smits or Alan Alda will be back next year depends on how the producer decides to play out the current campaign storyline.
