The Newsroom

Aaron Sorkin, perhaps best known for his acclaimed drama The West Wing, takes on cable news. Jeff Daniels stars as popular news anchor Will McAvoy. Along with his executive producer, Mackenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) and his team, he works to make a difference by reporting the real news with integrity and honesty. A great cast, the family dynamic of the whole team, plus Sorkin’s signature witty dialogue and idealism, combine to move the show from watchable to appointment television.
