Aaron Sorkin, the current king of scriptwriting, has been developing a new drama series with HBO over the last year. A year that has seen him win an Oscar and write the critically lauded Moneyball, so he ain't doing too badly.
However, Deadline are now reporting that the series, which had been previously entitled More As This Story Develops, has changed its name. So not everything is so rosey in Mr Sorkin's world then? OK, clearly this is just a minor misstep to what is probably the most anticipated show of 2012 but according to a HBO fan site, the show will now be titled Newsroom.
But that is yet to be cleared, yet the forum also has provided two snippets of dialouge from the show, which stars Jeff Daniels as Will McCallister and Sam Waterston as Charlie Skinner, both of whom work for the ficticous UBS network.
The scene goes as such ...
Will: Charlie, I can’t go after Halliburton and miss.
Charlie: Oh report the goddam news, Will.
Will: You remember a guy named Dan Rather?
Charlie: Dan got it right.
Will: He’s no longer on television.
Not exactly riviting yet, but it's all we have. Scott Rudin and Sorkin will executive produce the show, if and when it gets a new title.
