The series is set behind the scenes at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN) and centers around anchor Will (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer), newsroom staff Jim (John Gallagher, Jr.), Maggie (Alison Pill), Sloan (Olivia Munn), Neal (Dev Patel), Don (Thomas Sadoski), and their boss Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston)
The Newsroom is one of the notable TV shows in ways we seldom seen on TV. The cast is amazing, the production values are extensive and the script is both intelligent and well-written.
Expectations for the show are understandably much higher than they would because West Wing’s Aaron Sorkin pens the series.
Now we got to see a depiction of what’s happening in the war room that we seldom or not at all see or know during or before a newscast. I wonder how the local media find this new series?
So far as the pilot is concern, it poses great possibility that this will become one of HBO’s greatest production.
