The official list of paid consultants for the second season of the HBO series The Newsroom includes Chris Matthews (Hardball) and Ashleigh Banfield (CNN Newsroom) among others. With an all-star lineup of behind-the-scenes consultants the show aims to be as “real” as possible… with a generous helping of creator/writer Aaron Sorkin’s verbose idealism.
We spoke to Sorkin about his new show as well as coke binges, faking Hebrew, and his love of the workplace family.
Also, Jeff Daniels who plays news anchor Will McAvoy speaks about creating his own news personality… and Dumb and Dumber.
