The Newsroom revolves around a fictional TV News station called ACN (Atlantis Cable News) and is a political drama. It centers around the anchor of the show, the producer and all other staff members of the Newsroom. While there is only limited use of locations other than the actual TV station it is still very exciting and informing to watch. The show mainly treats news stories from the previous years and depicts the developement of the relationships between certain staff members.
I absolutely adored the show and thought it was very smart, especially because of the phenomenal writing of Aaron Sorkin. You might know him from the West Wing, another quite political show. While there was some criticism towards the show for being too one-sided concerning the depiction of the political parties of the USA, I still think it should be watched by everyone who is remotely interested in politics and news.
The actors are all great and convincing. Here’s a list of whom to expect: Jeff Daniels. Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel, Olivia Munn and Sam Waterston
Below you can find the opening scene of the show, for me that was the main reason why I started watching it in the first place.
