TORONTO, June 7, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - HBO Canada, a multiplex channel of Astral's The Movie Network (Eastern Canada) and Corus Entertainment's Movie Central (Western Canada), is taking subscribers inside the trenches of a fictional broadcast news organization with HBO's newest drama series, The Newsroom. From Aaron Sorkin, the creator of The West Wing and Sports Night, The Newsroom premieres Sunday, June 24 at 10:00 p.m ET/MT, day-and-date with HBO in the US.

The 10-part series centres on a cable news anchor (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), his newsroom staff (John Gallagher Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel, Olivia Munn) and their boss (Sam Waterston).
