TV HBO Releases Trailer for Aaron Sorkin's New Series "The Newsroom"

HBO Picks Up Aaron Sorkin's Cable News Drama
by Alex Moaba
posted Sep 8th 2011



Good news: Aaron Sorkin's highly-anticipated, yet-to-be-named cable news drama is going to become a reality.

HBO announced that they've ordered a ten-episode season of the show, which will mark the prolific screenwriter's return to TV and his first major project since the critically acclaimed film The Social Network.

The series will focus on a cable news anchor, played by Jeff Daniels, and his staff, who "set out on a patriotic and quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal entanglements."





HBO has already recruited some big names to guest star in the weekly, hour-long drama:

Olivia Munn will play Sloan, a newsroom staffer
Sam Waterston will play their boss



The newsroom staff will feature:

Dev Patel
Emily Mortimer
Alison Pil
John Gallagher, Jr.
Thomas Sadoski





Sorkin is no stranger to making TV shows about TV shows.

"Sports Nite", which starred Peter Krause and Felicity Huffman, was a behind-the-scenes look at a "Sportscenter"-style nightly sports highlight show.

The less-successful "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" was a dramedy about an "SNL" style comedy show.

Jane Fonda to Call Shots on Aaron Sorkin's New HBO Series
Dec 14, 2011
by Hanh Nguyen



Jane Fonda is heading to cable.

The two-time Oscar winner will join the cast of Aaron Sorkin's new HBO series about the cable news business in a recurring role, TVLine reports.



Fonda, 73, wil play Leona Lansing, the CEO of a fictional cable news network's parent company who is more concerned with the business aspects than the reporting side of the company.

Hmm, the alliterative name could be a nod to Fonda's ex-husband, CNN founder Ted Turner.
