Friendly reminder: it took two people to write that song.

For the record, I would watch the shit out of this.
Also: Charlie Skinner. Because obviously.
YO IF YOU’RE IN DC (or atlanta or boston or chicago or LA or new york or philly or san francisco or seattle) ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY IS SPONSORING AN ADVANCE SCREENING OF THE NEWSROOM
I am going to this next week (many thanks to unflinchingly for hooking me up) and I could not be more excited.
Here’s a mockup of the Web site for Atlantis Cable News, the fictional network at the center of Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming HBO show, “The Newsroom” (no relation to the ’90s Canadian dramedy of the same name). The show, starring Jeff Daniels and Jane Fonda, will be a bit of a harkening back to past Sorkin shows, taking a similar approach to “Sports Night” and “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” but applying it to an MSNBC/Fox News-style cable news network. Will be fun to watch. (h/t Poynter)
I am extremely disappointed this is not an NBS-based network, because then there’s the possibility of a Jack Rudolph/Wilson White mention and/or cameo appearance (I still miss you and all your faults, Studio 60!)
Although, is it too much to hope that the people who own ACN also own CSC? Because that is the cable universe I am creating in my mind.
