With verbal dexterity and screwball energy, Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom explores the professional and private tensions of a cable newscast trying to reinvigorate TV journalism despite corporate interference and commercial pressures. Sorkin, who previously investigated the media’s role in society with such projects as Sports Night and The Social Network, dramatizes the ongoing, often messy struggles of a respected anchor (Jeff Daniels) and his idealistic executive producer (Emily Mortimer) to deliver quality news while reconciling their past romantic entanglement. Like such Sorkin endeavors as The West Wing and Moneyball, The Newsroom features an exemplary ensemble that brings a liveliness and texture to the proceedings. Few series have portrayed the demands of the heart and mind with such deftness.
