HBO Announces Premiere Dates for True Blood and The Newsroom (Plus Trailer)

jeff daniels newsroomHBO has announced the premiere dates for the fifth season of the hist vampire drama True Blood and the freshman Aaron Sorkin written drama The Newsroom.

True Blood‘s 12-episode fifth season will kick off on Sunday, June 10 at 9/8c, with Newsroom premiering two weeks later (June 24th) at 10/9c.

Set behind-the-scenes at a fictional cable news network, The Newsroom centers on an anchor (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), his newsroom staff (Alison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Thomas Sadoski) and their boss (Sam Waterston).

I can’t wait for Newsroom. I’m a huge fan of everything that Aaron Sorkin does. From Sports Night and The West Wing, to Studio 60 on the Sunset script, it’s clear that Sorkin knows how to write compelling behind the scenes programming.

You can watch the trailer for Newsroom below.
