Tremendous trailer for screenwriting legend Aaron Sorkin’s new show

I’m going to put this out there – Aaron Sorkin is the greatest living chronicler of contemporary America. From The West Wing to The Social Network and not forgetting the criminally-cancelled Studio 60 on The Sunset Strip he is a writer of wit, unashamed intelligence and an instinctive feel for the way the USA operates. His new HBO series The Newsroom stars Jeff Daniels as an iconoclastic broadcaster and if this just-released teaser trailer is anything to go by, the usual Sorkin mix of pacey plot, scattergun dialogue and macro dramas explored on a personal level are all present and correct.
