The Newsroom


From the mind of Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball, comes The Newsroom, a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program. Focusing on a network anchor (played by Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), the newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel) and their boss (Sam Waterston), the series tracks their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles-not to mention their own personal entanglements.

‘The Newsroom: The Complete First Season’ Blu-ray and DVD Arrive June 11th

Created by Aaron Sorkin (Academy Award winner for writing The Social Network, executive producer and writer of the multiple Emmy winner The West Wing), the new HBO drama The Newsroom follows the ACN news team on their quixotic mission to reclaim the legacy of Murrow and Cronkite in the face of a fickle audience, corporate mandates and tangled personal relationships. The first season of the "noble and earnest" (Entertainment Weekly) series, which was nominated for two Golden Globe awards - Best Television Series Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series (Jeff Daniels) - debuts on Blu-ray with HBO Select* ($79.98), DVD ($59.99) and Digital Download on June 11, 2013. Both sets include the full 10-episode season, along with extensive bonus materials including exclusive interviews and never-before-seen content.

A favorite with viewers, news anchor Will McAvoy has found a safe niche with bankable ratings on his 8:00 p.m. flagship cable show, "News Night." Numbed by success, McAvoy has become stoic, complacent and cynical, content not to rock the boat as he delivers the nightly news straight down the middle of the road. In a literal blink of an eye, McAvoy is catapulted from apathy to engagement when a spontaneous outburst leads him to tackle the principles of American patriotism in a public forum prompting his staff to jump ship. Setting the stage for Will's return, his boss Charlie covertly orchestrates the hiring of his ex-girlfriend, MacKenzie McHale, as his new executive producer. With their shared past, she knows exactly how good he can be. Even more unsettling for him, she challenges Will to abandon the successful, middle-of-the-road approach that has made him so popular with both sides of the aisle, and realize his full potential by delivering the news with integrity.
