The Newsroom - Season 2 Shorter Due to Reshoots
Normally, you'd think that famed screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has enough experience to avoid that something like this happens. With his extraordinarily good White House series The West Wing that got drowned in awards and with his script for the Facebook film The Social Network that brought him the Oscar, Sorkin earned his merits in the industry. The expectations were thus high when The Newsroom aired on HBO. The series looks behind the curtains of a news outlet and has Jeff Daniels as a charismatic frontrunner. After the first season got both rave reviews and crushing critique, its return for the 2nd season will be very interesting.
The Hollywood Reporter accompanied Sorkin for a while and reports about his stressful work routine that is often characterized by writer's block and last minute completion of his episode scripts. During the work for the 2nd season of The Newsroom, Sorkin came to a point where he was dissatisfied with the way the plot was developing because it would have caused problems later on. So, despite having two episodes already in the can, he went to HBO asking them to start anew:
HBO, however, agreed and as much material as could be used was taken from the finished episodes in order to realize Sorkin's alterations. Still, the 2nd season will only run with 9 episodes and thus offer one less than the first season. But who will cry about that when it was done to increase the overall quality.
