The third and final season of The Newsroom finds Will and Mac and the staff of “News Night” facing two explosive situations: the possibility of a hostile takeover of the network looming on the horizon, and leaked classified government documents that unleash a legal fire storm that threatens to topple more than one professional career.
Going beyond the headlines, the six-part season turns its attention inward, focusing on a series of internal events at ACN that rock the very foundation of the network, and tackles such topics as privacy issues, the influence of social media on traditional news gathering and corporate takeover. The men and women of “News Night” are faced with personal and professional dilemmas that will forever determine their futures.
Set against the backdrop of the Boston Marathon bombing, The Newsroom kicks off the season with a highly charged look at the core issue of maintaining journalistic integrity in the era of 24-hour news cycles, while crowd-sourcing and “citizen journalism” result in the dissemination of misinformation.
Created by showrunner Aaron Sorkin (Oscar® winner for writing “The Social Network,” executive producer and creator of the multiple Emmy® winner “The West Wing”), the Golden Globe-nominated HBO drama series The Newsroom follows the “News Night” team at the cable network ACN on their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of a fickle audience, corporate mandates and tangled personal relationships. Beginning its six-episode, third and final season SUNDAY, NOV. 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), the series is executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin (the Oscar® winner “No Country for Old Men “) and Alan Poul (HBO’s multiple Emmy® winner “Six Feet Under”), with Denis Biggs (HBO’s “Entourage”) and Paul Lieberstein (“The Office”) joining the show as executive producers.
Jeff Daniels (Emmy® for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series) stars as Will McAvoy and Emily Mortimer (“Hugo,” “Shutter Island”) stars as Mackenzie McHale, the show’s executive producer.
Other returning cast regulars for the third season are: Sam Waterston (Oscar® nominee for “The Killing Fields”) as Charlie Skinner, Will’s old-school boss; John Gallagher, Jr. (Tony winner for “Spring Awakening”) as Jim Harper, Mackenzie’s loyal producer; Alison Pill (HBO’s “In Treatment”) as associate producer Maggie Jordan; Thomas Sadoski (Tony nominee for “Reasons to Be Pretty”) as Don Keefer, Will’s former executive producer; Dev Patel (“Slumdog Millionaire”) as resourceful self-made newsman Neal Sampat; and Olivia Munn (“I Don’t Know How She Does It”) as financial news analyst Sloan Sabbith.
Returning guests for season three include Jane Fonda (Oscar® winner for “Klute” and “Coming Home”) as Leona Lansing, the CEO of ACN’s parent company, Atlantis World Media; Chris Messina (“The Mindy Project”) as ACN president Reese Lansing; David Harbour (“Revolutionary Road”) as reporter Elliot Hirsch; and Marcia Gay Harden (Oscar® winner for “Pollock,” Oscar® nominee for “Mystic River”) as ACN attorney Rebecca Halliday.
New to the guest cast in season three are B.J. Novak (“The Office”) as Lucas Pruit, a suitor for control of ACN; Kat Dennings (“2 Broke Girls”) as Reese’s half-sister, Blair Lansing; Mary McCormack (“The West Wing”) as Molly, an FBI agent who’s a friend of Mac; Tony Award winner Joanna Gleason (“The Skeleton Twins”) as Charlie Skinner’s wife, Nancy; and Clea DuVall (“Argo”) as Lily, a mysterious woman who works for a government contractor.
