Specials

Two special episodes were produced to complement the series and broadcast on NBC. The first was a terrorism-themed episode produced in the wake of the September 11 attacks. The episode pushed the scheduled season premiere back a week and encouraged viewers to donate to charity--profits from the episode and cast members' weekly pay were also donated.[46] The episode "was written and produced in record time" - less than three weeks.[46][47] Although timely and well-intentioned, the episode was criticized for being condescending and preachy.[47]

The second special interspersed the characters' fictional lives with interviews of real West Wing personnel, including Presidents Ford, Carter and Clinton; press secretaries Marlin Fitzwater and Dee Dee Myers; presidential advisors David Gergen, Paul Begala and incumbent Karl Rove; Secretary of State Henry Kissinger; Chief of Staff Leon Panetta; presidential personal secretary Betty Currie; and speechwriter Peggy Noonan.[48] The documentary won a Primetime Emmy Award in 2002 for "Outstanding Special Class Program".[49] Both episodes ran within the season 3 television season and were included on the season's DVD.[50]

A third retrospective "clip-and-interview" special was slated to air in the hour before the series finale; however, it was axed and replaced with a re-run of the "Pilot" episode, as cast members were not contracted to do the special and there were disputes over pay.[51]
