Analog This: The Trailer for Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom

No, I have not seen “The West Wing” yet. I also have not seen “Sports Night” or “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.” The first two are on my to-watch list. However, I have seen “The Social Network,” and I still tune in to it every time it is on TV, and I know that Aaron Sorkin is a writer like no other. Sorkin is back, with an upcoming drama for HBO called “The Newsroom.” It looks like a Sorkin drama in every way, crackling with fast, whip-smart dialogue. And maybe it will bring HBO, the original purveyor of quality drama on cable, the new hit show that they have not had in years. The premiere is on June 24 and you can watch the trailer below.
