Watch the Full Pilot Episode of HBO’s The Newsroom

ON

HBO has taken an innovative approach to promoting their brand-new series “The Newsroom” and has released the full pilot episode (which premiered on the channel last night) on their YouTube channel.

Created by Aaron Sorkin (creator of “The West Wing” and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball), “The Newsroom” offers a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program. Focusing on a network anchor (played by Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), the newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel) and their boss (Sam Waterston), 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.
