HBO Orders 2nd Season of THE NEWSROOM

After airing just two episodes, HBO announced they were ordering a second season for Aaron Sorkin’s THE NEWSROOM.

This series centers on a cable news anchor (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), his newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel, Olivia Munn) and their boss (Sam Waterston). Together they set out on a patriotic and quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal relationships.

The reviews have mainly been either very positive or extremely negative. The show has it’s flaws, but I enjoy Aaron’s writing and have found it entertaining. Hopefully, as the season goes on, some of the flaws will be addressed.
