HBO Picks Up Aaron Sorkin Drama

HBO has picked up the hour-long cable-news drama from Aaron Sorkin, creator of Sports Night and The West Wing.

The untitled series, previously called More As This Story Develops, centers on a cable news anchor (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), their boss (Sam Waterson) and the newsroom staff as “they set out on a patriotic and quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal entanglements.” The cast also includes Alison Pill, John Gallagher Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and Thomas Sadoski).

Sorkin, who won an Academy Award for his screenplay for The Social Network, wrote the pilot, and will executive produce along with Scott Rudin and Alan Poul. Greg Mottola (Superbad, Paul) will direct.
