He and his roommates had purchased a Macintosh 512K so when he returned home he would empty his pockets of the cocktail napkins and type them into the computer, forming a basis from which he wrote many drafts for A Few Good Men.Meanwhile, David Brown was producing a few projects at Tri Star Pictures and tried to interest them in making A Few Good Men into a film but his proposal was declined due to the lack of star actor involvement.Wells took the concept and pitched it to the NBC network, but was told to wait because the facts behind the Lewinsky scandal were breaking and there was concern that an audience would not be able to take a series about the White House seriously."Stockard had done an episode of the show as the First Lady ...She took me out to lunch and said she really liked doing the show and wanted to do more and started asking me questions like, 'Who do you think this character is?
