The Newsroom: The Complete Second Season DVD

SKU ID #472584
$49.99
The one-hour HBO® drama series created by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin and Alan Poul.  Smart, topical, thought-provoking and highly entertaining, The Newsroom takes a behind-the-scenes look at a high-rated cable-news program at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN) Network, focusing on the on- and off-camera lives of its acerbic anchor (Jeff Daniels), executive producer (Emily Mortimer), their newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and others), news-division boss (Sam Waterston) and parent-company CEO (Jane Fonda).  Season 2 will take place over a five-day period leading up to Election Day 2012, and will encompass numerous flashbacks to earlier events from 2011 and 2012.  One of the season’s major story arcs involves a wrongful-termination lawsuit made by a staff member alleged to have doctored a report about a suspicious U.S. drone strike.  As details about the suit’s origin and aftermath emerge, The Newsroom team continues its quixotic mission to “do the news well” in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles, and their personal entanglements.

    We frequently want watch episodes the 2nd or 3rd time and we've already deleted them. This takes care of the problem.

      I saw the series originally presented, and this gives me an opportunity to re-live the experience and look more deeply into the plot and the characters, at my leisure.
