Life imitated art at PaleyFest, when real-life reporters interviewed the fictional journalists of "The Newsroom," HBO's cable news drama created by Aaron Sorkin. The creator of the series also gave some insight into what real-life headlines viewers can expect to see on the show next season.
"The show picks up a week after the first season left off," Sorkin, who was also the principal writer of "The West Wing" and the film "The Social Network," revealed to OTRC.com before the event. "So, we're in the middle of the primary and it will go right up to the election, and everything that came in between, [like]Trayvon Martin and the Affordable Care Act. And we'll be able to remember where we were when those things happened."

Aaron Sorkin has a knack for portraying the insider perspective and decided to take on the media with his new HBO series "The Newsroom."
"[The series is about] Don Quixote, a workplace family, romantic comedy, being young and alone in the city, forgiveness, the trivialization of the news, false equivalencies, false balance, false neutrality and a team of people who want to do their jobs well," Sorkin said in an interview provided by HBO.
