New teaser for ‘The Newsroom’ season 2, promising to follow the 2012 election and Occupy Wall Street
It may have been a long journey for Aaron Sorkin and company as The Newsroom heads to its second season. A new teaser will excite fans as the show returns next month.
Promising to cover the 2012 election, Occupy Movement and more, Sorkin revealed this week that he has to “restart” after a few episodes into the season.
“I doubt HBO’s going to be happy with my telling you this, but I got off to a false start with Season 2,” Sorkin admitted, explaining that the first three episodes — two of which he had already shot — would have proven structurally problematic for the remainder of the season. “With my hat in my hand, I went to HBO and said, ‘Would it be all right if I started again? I know it’s going to cost time and it’s going to cost a lot of money,’” he continued. “Other networks would have said no.”
Fans can even jump aboard without having watched the first season.
“Anybody coming to it new is not going to have much trouble picking up what’s going on,” he said in a preview video.
HBO‘s The Newsroom returns on July 14 with an episode scripted by Ian Reichbach and Aaron Sorkin and directed by EP Alan Poul.
