Created by Aaron Sorkin (Academy Award winner for writing The Social Network, executive producer and writer of the multiple Emmy winner The West Wing), the new HBO drama The Newsroom follows the Acn news team on their quixotic mission to reclaim the legacy of Murrow and Cronkite in the face of a fickle audience, corporate mandates and tangled personal relationships. The first season of the "noble and earnest" (Entertainment Weekly) series, which was nominated for two Golden Globe awards - Best Television Series Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series (Jeff Daniels) - debuts on Blu-ray with HBO Select* ($79.98), DVD ($59.99) and Digital Download on June 11, 2013. Both sets include the full 10-episode season, along with extensive bonus materials including exclusive interviews and never-before-seen content.

A favorite with viewers, news anchor Will McAvoy has found a safe niche with bankable ratings on his 8:00 p.m. flagship cable show, »
