The Newsroom: The Complete First Season DVD

SKU ID #379104
$39.98
HBO presents a series from the fertile mind of Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul. Smart, topical, humorous and highly entertaining, 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 (Jeff Daniels), new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), their newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and others) and their news-division boss (Sam Waterston). 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.

Special Features:
Episodic Previews & Recaps § Deleted Scenes § Inside the Episodes § “The Rundown” – Roundtable Discussion with Cast & Crew § “Mission Control” – A behind the scenes look at the state-of-the-art-set with the cast & crew § 5 Audio Commentaries with Aaron Sorkin, Alan Poul, Jeff Daniels, Sam Waterston, Emily Mortimer & more!

      Comments about this product:

      IMO, Season-1 was the best thing I've seen in a long time.
      Season-2 was good too...but the writing seemed to slip in the last couple of episodes. and when Will proposed - that was "jumping the shark" in my book. Regardless, I am looking forward to Season-3 even though it's the final chapter.

        I have recommended this show to EVERYONE I know. It is so good, my only wish is, someday that people who produce the news today, will watch this and learn/remember what NEWS is suppose to be and more over what it is NOT suppose to be.

        Thank you for producing something truly worth watching!

        How a real news program would look

          Comments about this product:

          The excellent writing and acting of this show provide a glimpse of how a world of responsible journalism might look: fearless, accurate and in-depth. Add to that the human angles of love, intrigue and conflicting interests, and you have a very powerful show. Only a pay-channel like HBO could produce this sort of program. It's the best thing I've seen on television.
