The newest series from Aaron Sorkin about the behind-the-scenes action at a fictional television program has just gotten a title, MediaBistro reports. Sorkin’s newest is said to be titled Newsroom and will star Jeff Daniels as the lead anchor of a popular cable news show called “News Night.”
We first reported on Sorkin’s latest back in June when Tom’s hero Sam Waterston signed on to the show (at the time known as More As This Story Develops). Since then, we’ve learned that HBO has ordered a full series. I haven’t been able to find any info about when we can expect to actually see this show hit the air, but I do know that I feel much more confident that it is on HBO and not a major network. We will of course follow additional news about Newsroom as it develops.
