WATCH : The #Newsroom Episode 9 (The Blackout Part II: Mock Debate) Preview
I really enjoyed the last episode. We only have two episodes left and it seems Aaron Sorkin is going in for his typically incredible end of season one cliffhanger. It makes me feel a lot better knowing that we already have a season two greenlit.
Check out the preview for the next episode above which has been named ‘The Blackout Part II: Mock Debate’.
Episode Synopsis: Will and the “News Night” staff stage a mock debate for a pair Republican Party officials. Mac has an epiphany during a power outage; Charlie vets the credibility of an NSA insider; Lisa (Kelen Coleman) goes off-script during an on-air interview; Neal goes undercover as an internet troll.
Written by Aaron Sorkin; directed by Alan Poul.
The Newsroom airs Sundays at 10pm on HBO
About the Show
From the mind of Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball, comes The Newsroom, a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program. Focusing on a network anchor (played by Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), the newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel) and their boss (Sam Waterston), the series tracks their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles-not to mention their own personal entanglements.
