“The Newsroom” premiering Sunday 24 is a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable – news program. Focussing on a network anchor (played by Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (played by Emily Mortimer), the newsroom staff (played by John Gallagher Jr, Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel) and their boss (played by Sam Waterstone), the series tracks their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles not to mention their own personal entanglements.
