Aaron Sorkin didn’t know how 'The Newsroom' would end when he began writing the final season

17 September 2014 5:27 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Aaron Sorkin didn’t know how “The Newsroom” would end when he began writing the final season "For most of the time, I didn’t know how the show was going to end,” he says. "I would have small images of what I wanted to see. But the closer I got to the end of the season in terms of writing, the more I was able to see the end of the season finale. Once we got there, it happened more easily than I thought it was going to.” “Godzilla” movie has a “Breaking Bad” easter egg For a split second in the opening credits, you can see Walter White’s name.

Aaron Sorkin: I didn't know how 'The Newsroom' was going to end

17 September 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The lights are about to dim on the HBO’s The Newsroom. The drama, created by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing) and focusing on fictional cable news channel Acn, begins its final season on Nov. 9, and will wrap up its story in a tight six episodes. “It was because of my schedule,” Sorkin says of the shortened season. “But, as it turned out, six was the right number. I don’t know what we would have done with a seventh episode.”

So what’s in these final hours? EW talked to Sorkin about weddings, power plays, and Twitter scandals.

HBO Sets Premiere Dates for 'The Comeback' & 'The Newsroom'

9 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

HBO announced a trio of fall premiere dates for returning series, including one show that hasn't been on the network for nearly a decade.

That latter series, "The Comeback," is making a triumphant comeback of its own, with Lisa Kudrow reprising her role as washed-up sitcom star Valerie Cherish. The first iteration of the show lasted 13 episodes back in 2005 before it was pulled by HBO; this time around, it's being brought back for an eight-episode limited series run, set to premiere on November 9.

Directly in front of "The Comeback" on the schedule is "The Newsroom," which is returning for its third and final season on the network. The Aaron Sorkin-penned series will wrap up its run with six episodes, and Paul Lieberstein ("The Office") is joining the show as an executive producer.

Rounding out the programming block is "Getting On," the dark comedy set in a hospital. Its sophomore »

Patricia Clarkson Heads Back To HBO For Elisabeth

4 September 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Those of us that bang the drum for more film and television work originated by women can enjoy a small victory dance today, as it seems the creative partnership between actress Patricia Clarkson and director Ruba Nadda will continue with the development of an hour-long romantic drama, titled Elisabeth. While details of the premise are currently sketchy, it seems the show will be set amidst the world of international politics, which means we can look forward to the fabulous and talented Clarkson holding court in a realm we have never really seen her tackle before.

The Clarkson-Nadda team has previously delivered two feature films. The first – 2009’s Cairo Time – featured Clarkson opposite Alexander Siddig in a tale of unexpected romance, and won the Best Canadian Feature Film award at the Toronto International Film Festival. The second – October Gale – features Clarkson as a doctor living on a remote island, caught in »

Jeff Daniels on Working with Jim Carrey, Returning to Dumb and Dumber

2 September 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Things you can count on in life: cat videos, Pamela Anderson's confusing romantic choices and Harry and Lloyd being really, really dumb. The pea-brained characters, played by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, are back in the sequel to 1994's Dumb and Dumber - and they're still "oblivious to the world around them," Daniels tells People in this week's issue. "We haven't gained one ounce of intelligence in 20 years." For Daniels, 59, shooting Dumb and Dumber To, out Nov. 14, meant the opportunity to reteam with "comic tornado" Carrey, 52. "We're friends. Harry and Lloyd are friends," he says. "That feeds into the chemistry. »

Venice Film Review: ‘Olive Kitteridge’

1 September 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

She’s “Ollie” to her husband and “Mrs. K” to the students in her middle-school mathematics class, and her daughter-in-law insists on calling her “Mom.” But audiences will forever know this unforgettable, irascible woman as “Olive Kitteridge,” thanks to the remarkably complex portrayal Frances McDormand delivers over the course of a four-hour HBO miniseries she optioned and developed herself, bringing aboard her “Laurel Canyon” helmer, Lisa Cholodenko, to direct. Even more so than 2011’s “Mildred Pierce,” .

Elizabeth Strout wrote “Olive Kitteridge” not as a traditional novel, but rather as a collection of 13 short stories — a portrait of small-town Crosby, Maine, with its minor crises and major hypocrisies, interlinked by the presence (sometimes peripheral) of Olive’s character. Such a format makes it all but impossible to reduce the Pulitzer-winning book’s nonlinear quarter-century span to an efficient two-hour narrative. Besides, the feature format is better suited to heroes with clearly »

Review: Reese Witherspoon goes for it all in 'Wild'

29 August 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — There is a moment near the end of "Wild" where Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) runs into a young boy and his grandmother out on a weekend hike. Strayed has walked hundreds of miles on the Pacific Crest Trail in an attempt to deal with personal, emotional pain that has plagued her most of her young adult life. After learning of Strayed's heartbreaks the young boy (Evan O'Toole) sings her the song "Red River Valley." In the hands of a lesser director this scene could have been overly saccharine and misplaced. But director Jean-Marc Vallée makes it as artful and touching as it needs to be. Clearly, we should not have doubted him. Vallée was one of the main creative forces of "Dallas Buyers Club," but did not earn a Best Director Oscar nod. Instead, he made due with an editing nomination. This was disheartening in some respects because there »

The Newsroom Season 3 - Copier Teaser

26 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

HBO has released the first teaser for the third and final season of Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom. The clever promo features a copying machine printing out pages of the script for  the final episodes, and they tease story plot points of espionage, a court case, and more. I've really enjoyed the first two seasons of this series, and I wish it wasn't so short lived, but hopefully it has a strong ending.

HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo had this to say in a statement:

The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking. I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.”

Series co-star Olivia Munn added that the show will end the way Sorkin wants it to:

“I love [Season 3 being the last] because, one, I think it’s so much better to do a project where everyone’s excited about doing it and the work is really great and you’re excited about. »

The Emmy Awards stuck with old favorites last night

26 August 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

There was a sense going into the Emmy Awards yesterday that it might be a chance to say “out with the old and in with the new”, so to speak. Essentially, last night was shaping up to be a big battle between old guard winners like Breaking Bad and Modern Family against young bucks like Orange is the New Black and True Detective. I don’t watch enough television to have done official predictions, but I certainly had a rooting interest in seeing some of the top notch new shows take home prizes. Well, last night proved that the Emmy voters like what they like, as old favorite beat back new contenders fairly consistently. I’ll post all of the winners at the end of this piece, but I wanted to focus in on a few of the categories in particular. Mainly the versions of Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress for this show. »

2014 Emmy Award Winners Dominated by 'Breaking Bad'

26 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »
