Viral Video: “The Newsroom” Is Reborn
Here’s a new trailer for HBO’s upcoming series “The Newsroom,” by famed Hollywood screenwriter Aaron Sorkin.
The series — by the man behind the hit television show “The West Wing” and the Facebook movie “The Social Network” — is set at a cable news channel under siege in the new-media age.
In other words, lots of hand-wringing over blogs and tweeting, along with the drama.
It looks tasty, and Walt Mossberg and I will be asking Sorkin about it at the 10th D: All Things Digital conference at the end of this month, where he will be appearing as a speaker.
Enjoy (I also included another trailer, that starts off the “Newsroom” series):
