Hi Bryan Here….

HBO has officially picked up Aaron Sorkin’s new show.  It is currently untitled, but should have a name shortly.  The cast is amazing.  I am looking forward to seeing Jeff Daniels in this.  Should be great.


The series centers on a cable news anchor (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), his newsroom staff (Alison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Thomas Sadoski) and their boss (Sam Waterston). Together 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.
