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.
