THE NEWSROOM: Third trailer for upcoming HBO series

This trailer focuses on Wil (Jeff Daniels) and the stress and anxiety he is dealing with. David Krumholtz appears to be his Psychiatrist and there are references to something that happened four years ago.

The overall gist of the series is that Wil Macavoy is “the Jay Leno of news” and goes to great lengths to avoid being confrontational or sharing his own views. But when doing a college interview, he loses his cool and goes off on a student asks him to say why America is the greatest country in the world. At that moment, he appears to undergo a life-changing experience and decides to deliver the news with honestly and no nonsense. And while his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), his newsroom staff (Alison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Thomas Sadoski) and their boss (Sam Waterston) are behind him, it causes problems with Leona Lansing (Jane Fonda), the CEO of the cable news network’s parent company.

THE NEWSROOM debuts Sunday, June 24 on HBO.
