'The Newsroom' Releases a New TrailerKevin Fitzpatrick |
Sure, 'Game of Thrones' is great and all (I mean, did you see last night's "The Ghost of Harrenhal?"), but with 'Boardwalk Empire' still on hiatus, it may feel like we've been a little lacking for down-to-Earth HBO drama. So before we settle in this summer, how about a fresh look at Aaron Sorkin's upcoming news drama 'The Newsroom?'
Apart from the initial trailer, a sly bit of casting and a potential leak of the pilot script, details of Aaron Sorkin's latest TV drama 'The Newsroom' have been a bit hard to come by. And while the first trailer did its best to capture the breakdown that got Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) on everyone's radar, the latest focuses more on the fallout, and a bit of the supporting cast that carries McAvoy into his next endeavor. Plus, who doesn't love a little more Sam Waterston in a bow tie?
HBO will premiere Aaron Sorkin’s new journalism drama ‘The Newsroom’ on June 24, which is set at a fictional cable news network, and follow 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).
Check out the second trailer for the hotly-anticipated series below, and tells us if you'll tune in in the comments!
