The unemployment line just got a little longer, courtesy of Aaron Sorkin.
The show runner just fired the ENTIRE writing staff for The Newsroom… aside from his ex-gf Corinne Kinsbury.
Was the guy who penned The Social Network dissatisfied with the quality of his staff's work? Was he angry about the complete lack of boobies in the first four episodes?
Either way, season two of the Jeff Daniels TV show offering a romanticized peek inside a functioning broadcast newsroom is already green-lit.
So polish those resumes, because Sorkin is hiring!!
HBO downplayed the importance of the personnel switcheroo.
In a statement, the network admitted:
"Every year each show reassesses the needs of its writing staffs. This process is nothing out of the ordinary."
Sorkin is notoriously anal about his TV shows anyway — there's a good chance that season one's staff was barely allowed to participate in the creative process.
Will this make U any more or less likely to tune in??
