HBO has finally released the teaser trailer for their highly anticipated NEWSROOM, the latest and greatest from screen writing genius Aaron Sorkin.
The trailer is pretty much everything you expected, fast-paced dialogue, human drama, etc. etc., but that doesn’t mean we’re any less excited. If anything, our excitement has increased.
The show focuses on Will, played by Jeff Daniels, as a news anchor for a cable news network. He has a meltdown, and everything changes. He’s joined by Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, Dev Patel, Sam Waterston, Oliva Munn and Jane Fonda.
Sorkin reportedly spent time at CNN and MSNBC speaking with producers to get a feel for the cable news landscape, which explains a lot of “Will’s” Olbermann-isms.
NEWSROOM debuts on HBO Sunday June 24th.
