The Newsroom has only just started on HBO, yet the show has already been picked up for a 2nd season. HBO have obviously been impressed with the initial showing from The Newsroom. The pilot episode pulled in over 2 million viewers and which was only just beaten by the Game of Thrones pilot episode in 2010.
The Newsroom, created by Aaron Sorkin and centres on a cable news anchor, his new executive producer, his newsroom staff and their boss as 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 drama series stars Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Sam Waterstone, John Gallagher Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel and Olivia Munn.
