The Newsroom: The Complete First Season - DVD Television
HBO presents the new one-hour drama series from the fertile mind of Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul.
Smart, topical, humorous and highly entertaining, The Newsroom takes a behind-the-scenes look at a high-rated cable-news program at the fictional ACN Network, focusing on the on- and off-camera lives of its acerbic anchor (Jeff Daniels), new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), their newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and others) and their news-division boss (Sam Waterston). Overcoming a tumultuous first day together – climaxing in a newsflash that a BP oil rig has just exploded in the Gulf of Mexico – the team sets out on a patriotic if quixotic mission to “do the news well” in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles, and their own personal entanglements.
THE RUNDOWN: Creator and Executive Producer Aaron Sorkin along with Alan Poul (Executive Producer), Greg Mottola (Co-Executive Producer), Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, and Sam Waterston discuss in detail their experiences shooting the first season in this exclusive conversation.
MISSION CONTROL: A behind-the-scenes look at the state-of-the-art sets with the cast and crew.
AUDIO COMMENTARIES: Five audio commentaries with cast and crew including Aaron Sorkin, Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer and many more.
