You Can't Make Television Show With A President Without These Episodes
I always wonder how far in advance show runners and writers know they are going break these events in a "President" series.
- •The Assassination AttemptStarting with the most obvious. This is going to happen at some point. This could actually snowball in to the next one...
- •Invoking the 25th AmmendmentWhen the president is unable to perform his duties so the VP takes over. The VP will probably be in over his/her head.
- •The LeakSomeone on the President's senior staff will leak classified information.
- •The ElectionAnother obvious one but if the show goes on at least 4 years then your hand is forced.
- •A Security Threat in the West WingIt'll probably end up being nothing but it's a solid plot device for getting groups of people who don't interact much or who are having a conflict to be stuck in "lock down" together.
