If you've sat through any horror remake credits of the past few years, you'll see Bay's had success at it too, but now he's looking to conquer premium cable with a new swashbuckling series in the works.

Aaron Sorkin has written television shows about television before, and both met fairly similar fates.

Sorkin and HBO will be hoping that critical acclaim is coupled with returning audiences for his new show, “The Newsroom,” when it premieres on June 24th.
