The Newsroom: Season 2 (2014)
Monday 1st September 2014
HBO Home Entertainment announces that The Newsroom: The Complete Second Season will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download from 27th October 2014. Get the autocue prepared and the microphones checked for another bulletin from the ever-changing and politically fuelled world of cable news network 'ACN', where the sources aren't always as trustworthy as they seem.
Nominated for three Emmy® Awards and two Golden Globe® Awards, the HBO drama series created by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, The West Wing) and executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul is back for an explosive second season. Returning A-List cast include Emmy® Award Winner Jeff Daniels (Looper, Speed) as network anchor Will McAvoy and his executive producer Mackenzie McHale, played by Emily Mortimer (Shutter Island, Hugo).
The Newsroom: The Complete Second Season welcomes back familiar faces in the news team including; Margaret Jordan (Alison Pill; Scott Pilgrim vs the World), Sloan Sabbith (Olivia Munn; Iron Man 2, Magic Mike), Neal Sampat (Dev Patel; Slumdog Millionaire), news-division boss Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston; Law & Order) and formidable Leona Lansing as the CEO of Atlantic World Media, (played by Jane Fonda; The Butler), as they set out on a long journey to change the network's attitude to news.
As season two develops it's clear that the format has taken a slight twist. While each episode continues to focus on a major piece of news, there's also a series-long storyline dealing with a piece of misreporting from Will and his team, with the potential to decimate the entire channel and its staff.
The Newsroom: The Complete Second Season uses recent real-life events to show how a news channel would cover big stories, gather facts, and find witnesses. The result is one of the most immersive television shows ever made, lauded on both sides of the Atlantic for its smart, balanced take on issues of the day. This is Aaron Sorkin at his very best.
