First Look Video: Does HBO's Aaron Sorkin-Produced Drama The Newsroom Look Familiar?

Take Sports Night, add a dash of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and sprinkle in a little West Wing for good measure and you’ve got The Newsroom, Aaron Sorkin’s new HBO drama set behind-the-scenes at a fictional cable news network. At least that’s the vibe we’re getting from the show’s first official trailer. 

The hour-long series centers on an anchor (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), his newsroom staff (Alison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Thomas Sadoski) and their boss (Sam Waterston).
