The Newsroom

A behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program. Focusing on a network anchor, his new executive producer, the newsroom staff, and their boss, the series tracks their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles-not to mention their own personal entanglements.

The final season of The Newsroom, which will air this fall on HBO, is currently filming its last 6 episodes, instead of the usual 10-episode order (season 2 was 9 episodes because of reshoots on the first 3 episodes).
Thus the show's final tally will be 25 episodes - unless Sorkin decides he wants to go for another round, in which case there wouldn't be any contract problems with the cast.

    In Sorkin's world ACN stands for Atlantis Cable Network. There is a real life ACN in Canada which provides Internet and telephone services, and there was an ACN cable network in the US. It was "America's Collectibles Network" and sold everything from knives and watches to cosmetics and jewelry. In 2000 they changed their name to Jewelry Television. Seen in 80 million homes, they still use the ACN name legally and on signage at their broadcast location in Knoxville, TN.
