Now this feels more like an Aaron Sorkin show.
A new trailer for his upcoming HBO series The Newsroom strikes a considerably different tone than that of the first, in which brash news anchor Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) has a Howard Beale-like meltdown. But Trailer No. 2 shows it's not all angry intensity as an even-keeled McAvoy tries amends with his new cable news show, Newsnight 2.0, and we get the usual fast-paced, clever Sorkin dialogue we know so well.
