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 renewed a couple of their shows, one a seasoned vet and the other a newcomer.
The company has given their hit Southern Gothic horror-fantasy series True Blood, which just recently began its fifth season run, a sixth season order. They also ordered a second season for their new series The Newsroom.
The new drama The Newsroom, debuted its pilot episode recently to strong numbers, but HBO wants to make sure all are able to watch it, whether you subscribe to their channel or not.
Starting earlier this week, the pilot was released all over the ‘net for folks to check out at their leisure. You can find out where to check out the first episode of The Newsroom for free by clicking on over to the other side now.
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.
