The Newsroom: The Complete First Season (TV) (2012)

Synopsis: Nominated for two Golden Globe awards -- Best Television Series Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series (Jeff Daniels) -- The Newsroom follows the ACN news team on their quixotic mission to reclaim the legacy of Murrow and Cronkite in the face of a fickle audience, corporate mandates and tangled personal relationships. News anchor Will McAvoy (Daniels), the "Jay Leno of News Anchors," has found a safe niche with bankable ratings on his 8:00 p.m. flagship cable show, "News Night." Numbed by success, McAvoy has become stoic, complacent and cynical, content to avoid rocking the boat as he delivers the nightly news straight down the middle of the road.
In a literal blink of an eye, though, McAvoy is catapulted from apathy to engagement when a spontaneous outburst leads him to tackle the principles of American patriotism in a public forum prompting his staff to jump ship. Setting the stage for Will's return, his boss Charlie (Waterson) covertly orchestrates the hiring of his ex-girlfriend, MacKenzie McHale (Mortimer), as his new executive producer. With their shared past, she knows exactly how good he can be. Even more unsettling for him, she challenges Will to abandon the successful, middle-of-the-road approach that has made him so popular with both sides of the aisle, and realize his full potential by delivering the news with integrity.
