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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best-Ever TV series Newsroom is one of the best ever TV series that I have watched. I first saw it on Foxtel after it was recommended to me by a friend in Singapore. I patiently waited for each episode for each of the three series. Now I have bought the complete boxed set and was able to re-watch it with my wife who had not seen it before. She agrees with me about how good it is and is willing to watch it all over again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Aaron Sorkin winner! If you love the West Wing, you’ll love The Newsroom! Quality writing, fast paced conversation a great series that does not target the lowest common denominator. Jeff Daniels is amazing and surrounded by a quality cast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It delivers! I'd actually heard mixed reactions to this show, but obviously most TV shows are excellent nowadays, and this one was no different. It's about the workings of a news broadcast station, it's centred in New York, and the channel is called Atlantis Cable News (ACN). The news anchor is Will McAvoy, played by Jeff Daniels. The showrunner is his romantic interest Mackenzie McHale, though at this stage, she cheated on him and he's behaving vengefully the entire season. Will is both uptight and laidback - he doesn't have time for garbage, but he'll listen to it. When he's on the air, his only interest is to civilise society or at least those who watch his nightly news programme, News Night. He's the type of anchor most people fantasise about existing, you would imagine. He doesn't spin anything, he doesn't cave in to hype, he doesn't sell nonsense. The news stories incorporated into each episode are based on real news stories in our world, so it's compelling to watch. The first episode hooks you when Will ignores the tele-prompter and just does his thing automatically. Elsewhere, the show deals mostly with conference room meetings where ideas are brainstormed. There are also office romances going on, including a love triangle. That's only natural when people are confined to the one work area. The show is heavily political without actually taking sides. Some great ideas about ethics, religion and sexuality exist this season. Each episode is written by 'The Social Network's' Aaron Sorkin, so expect witty dialogue that's insightful, but will also make you laugh. 10/10
