[UPDATE] Check out trailer #2 for Aaron Sorkin’s Newsroom after the jump.
[Original] Welcome to Aaron Sorkin’s newest series on The Newsroom on HBO. We’ve taken a little while in getting to this fantastic trailer only because it was released the same day as the season 5 trailer for True Blood. Its no excuse we know, but now its finally here and watch Jeff Daniels rip everybody apart. With words and stares, of course. Check out the trailer below.
It’s got that Damages feel of importance and scandal, which should make for some interesting drama. I wasn’t old enough to really know The West Wing, but what I see in clips and read how others remember it, I can only assume Sorkin will make it more than interesting. Probably riveting. I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Social Network, but I had no problems with his script.
The Newsroom focuses on “fiction cable news anchor Will McAvoy (Daniels) as he attempts to keep an even temper during his nightly program.” Surely when answering a question with this: “When you ask what makes us the great country in the world, I don’t know what the f—- you’re talking about!” You know you’re in for a treat.
The series stars Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher Jr., Allison Pill (which we recently cast in an all-female version of Reservoir Dogs), Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn and Dev Patel. Jane Fonda is a recurring guest star and Social Network-alum Jesse Eisenberg will make a cameo appearance in the pilot.
The Newsroom premieres June 24, 2012 on HBO.
