Oh yes please: new Aaron Sorkin TV series gets a trailer

Newsroom based. It’s called “The Newsroom.” It’s like a TV series made for me.

There’s a language warning in this clip.

It’s like Studio 60 meets Sports night, but with new actors. Yet still I can’t wait!

Everybody say: ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.’

Wow wow wow. I knew it was coming. And now it’s here. The bidding war surrounding Studio 60 was a lesson for Sorkin. It’s not just about the highest bidder but finding the right fit. Thus HBO is absolutely the best move. They fully back series and I suggest this one should get well past 1 season. The truncated story arc on Studio 60 was a sad result of being on a network which didn’t fully support it, and which made the stupid decision of greenlighting two behind the scenes of a late night comedy show shows in the same season (I refer you to 30 Rock). Studio 60 had higher ratings but a much higher budget.

End rant.

This show will probably be the best thing on television this year.

how do you know all this gold Mr Cowling? I’ve always wondered why Studio 60 never saw more than 1 season.
