There is no great directing-name behind this one, but TV royalty (Aaron Sorkin is the creator of 'The West Wing').
Acting are, among others, the apple of my eye, Dev Patel, a brilliant Olivia Munn and too rare Jeff Daniels.
'The Newsroom' is nothing groundbreaking; it's not Trailblazer TV, like 'Treme' or 'The Sopranos'. What it is : well-wrought, graceful, sharp and quick-witted.
Oh, and heavily addictive.
