Coming much sooner to our televisions, meanwhile, is Sorkin's "The Newsroom," which premieres this Sunday, June 24th. With a stellar ensemble cast led by Jeff Daniels, the show is in the same vein of Sorkin's previous small screen efforts ("The West Wing," "Sports Night") and follows the behind-the-scenes drama. Only this time, he's chosen a 24 hour news network as his setting.
The show centers on news anchor Will McAvoy (Daniels), who faces a major change when his co-anchor bails for another program and takes most of the staff with him. Sparks are expected to fly with the pressure on him to carry the show and deliver ratings, while trying to get along with the staff. Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, Dev Patel, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Thomas Sadoski, Jane Fonda and Sam Waterston co-star with "Superbad" and "Adventureland" director Greg Mottola helming the pilot and at least two other episodes. Here are plenty of new looks from the show. [Collider]
