This has literally never once happened before in TV or film. Every woman in the history of the moving image has gone to bed fully made-up, and woken up with it still immaculately applied.

West Wing and Newsroom creator Aaron Sorkin has announced plans for his latest TV project, in which not every single character will be capable of delivering perfectly timed bons mots
