We had a feeling this was going to happen.
We're very pleased to announce that The West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin's HBO pilot has been picked up by the network as a series!
The pilot, formerly known as More As This Story Develops, revolves around a news network and stars an impressive cast including Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, and Sam Waterston.
We're glad to see Aaron back on TV! He hasn't had a show since 2006's less-than-successful Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, but we've got a feeling he'll have better luck with this one!
Good luck, Mr. Sorkin!!!!!
