The Newsroom takes a behind-the-scenes look at a high-rated cable-news program at the fictional ACN Network, focusing on the on- and off-camera lives of its acerbic anchor, new executive producer, their newsroom staff and their news-division boss. Overcoming a tumultuous first day together – climaxing in a newsflash that a BP oil rig has just exploded in the Gulf of Mexico – the team sets out on a patriotic if quixotic mission to “do the news well” in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles, and their own personal entanglements.

Presto Review

"The personal and the political intertwine in this compelling and timely back stage news drama. The chemistry between Emily Mortimer and Jeff Daniels is electrifying and their quixotic mission to deliver good news inspiringly sincere."
