Sorkin does CNN for HBO

Here’s another one I’ll watch. He did sports news (“Sports Night”) and succeeded with national politics (“West Wing”) and now Aaron Sorkin will provide his special POV for a series on cable news for HBO. The untitled hour-long drama doesn’t have an air date yet, according to Broadcasting & Cable.

The series will portray staffers at a fictional cable news network “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 entanglements,” the HBO release says. I like that patriotic and quixotic turn. Wonder which network that is?

Jeff Daniels, Sam Waterston and Olivia Munn are in the cast.
