Aaron Sorkin's new HBO show - The Newsroom

By Richard K. Barry

Aaron Sorkin
Aaron Sorkin is at it again, this time with a new show on HBO called "The Newsroom." Huffington Post describes it like this:
"The Newsroom" follows fictional cable news anchor Will McAvoy (Daniels) as he attempts to keep an even temper during his nightly programs. But when asked for a "human moment" in the trailer, he says, "When you ask what makes us the greatest country in the world, I don't know what the fuck you're talking about!"

Jeff Daniels stars as news anchor Will McAvoy. The show also features Emily Mortimer as the executive producer, John Gallagher Jr., Allison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn and Dev Patel; with Jane Fonda in a recurring guest spot.

"The Newsroom" premiers on Sunday, June 24 on HBO. Here's the trailer. Looks pretty good. At least with Sorokin, we know the writing will be great.
