Aaron Sorkin’s ‘Newsroom’ Pilot Script Leaks Online
Ah, the internet. While it can end up driving us crazy looking for tidbits and information on returning seasons of our favorite TV shows, its the freshmen that are usually willing to either share their first episodes early, or at least end up less cavalier about their scripts. So who’s the latest leak?
Details, photos and videos for Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming journalistic drama ‘The Newsroom‘ have been a bit hard to come by, but according to those hounds at Spoiler TV, we may just get our first look at the full pilot script! It’s more likely the real-deal than that allegedly leaked ‘Breaking Bad’ script, but still worth taking with a grain of salt.
For those unfamiliar with the series, on June 24 HBO will premiere Aaron Sorkin’s new journalism drama ‘The Newsroom,’ set behind-the-scenes at a fictional cable news network, and following Jeff Daniels as anchor Will McAvoy, Emily Mortimer as his new executive producer, his newsroom staff (Alison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Thomas Sadoski) as well as their boss (‘Law and Order’s Sam Waterston).
Beyond that, we imagine one can expect lots of Sorkin-y snap dialogue, and at least one scene of characters walking, and talking. Check out the pilot script if you dare (as well as some early episode casting calls to flesh things out), and tell us if you’ll be there to watch ‘The Newsroom’ when it premieres on HBO Sunday, June 24 after an all-new episode of ‘True Blood!’
