The ongoing fight for gun control seems to have no end with parties for and against unable to come to some sort of consensus. So while that fight continues, it makes for some really good drama, and what better way for the general audience to see that than through an ensemble dramatization.
The first trailer for Miss Sloane starring Jessica Chastain has dropped online, and it doesn’t so much make an argument for gun control but rather what a lobbyist’s responsibilities are to make sure that their bill passes. Check out the full trailer below.

With shows like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, and True Blood leading the charge, it’s clear that HBO’s hit shows can often have a hefty budget and rely heavily on visual effects and costumes and so on. One of their newer series, The Newsroom, is not one of those shows.
Created by Aaron Sorkin, the show is simple enough on the surface—being about the inner workings of a news team—but a collection of lives intertwined within this newsroom setting leads to plenty of interesting storylines as the show progresses. Instead of the aforementioned effects and costumes, it instead relies on two key things: writing and acting, and nails both of them consistently.
HBO has officially announced start dates for season five of True Blood, as well as a new series titled The Newsroom.
The fifth season of the ultra-popular vampire horror-fantasy series will debut on Sunday, June 10 at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
The show, set mainly in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, follows a waitress named Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) with peculiar abilities whose seemingly normal life is abruptly overtaken by vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, witches, and other fantastical beings…not to mention all of the dangers that come with them.
