Follows fictional cable news anchor Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) and his “News Night” staff at the fictional cable news channel UBS.
In the premiere of this drama set at a cable-news network, popular "News Night" anchor Will McAvoy returns to work after a public meltdown to find most of his staff has jumped ship, but new hires help steer the show when news of a catastrophe breaks in the spring of 2010.
Somehow, mainstream media seems to think this show is "too didactic" - but that reeks to me of fear. Sorkin says exactly what people need to hear; it's time to step back, move forward, and let the professionals do their jobs. He's fantastic at portraying both sides to all key debates; I love the energy and direction of each season, so different and nuanced. A pleasure to watch.
