Description

    From the mind of Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball,  comes The Newsroom,  a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program.

    Season 1
    The Newsroom focus on the on- and off-camera lives of its acerbic anchor (Jeff Daniels), new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), their newsroom staff (John Gallagher Jr, Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel) and their news-division boss (Sam Waterston). Overcoming a tumultuous first day together – climaxing in a newsflash that a BP oil rig has just exploded in the Gulf of Mexico – the team sets out on a patriotic if quixotic mission to “do the news well” in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles, and their own personal entanglements.

    Season 2
    It’s a year later and in the days leading up to Election Night 2012, the News Night team is facing a law suit in the aftermath of a news report about a suspicious US drone strike that turned out to be falsified. Meanwhile in an attempt to get away from the Maggie situation, Jim volunteers for life on the road covering the Presidential campaigns and Maggie’s first field assignment ends in tragedy.

    Season 3
    The final season of The Newsroom, the one-hour drama created by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul.  Smart, topical, thought-provoking and highly entertaining, The Newsroom takes a behind-the-scenes look at a high-rated cable-news program at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN) Network, focusing on the on- and off-camera lives of its acerbic anchor (Jeff Daniels), executive producer (Emily Mortimer), their newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and others), news-division boss (Sam Waterston) and parent-company CEO (Jane Fonda).

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Witty media satire The Newsroom explores the loss of integrity in the media world as it sells out to advertising, sponsorship, ratings and political pressure and the consequences of going against these powers. It holds a harsh magnifying glass to the American political system, gun reliance and economic failings, all done in an honestly endearing yet humorous way that will allow you to really get involved with all the characters. I would defiantly recommend this series to anyone who has ever watched the News and been disappointed by a bias agenda.
