'Newsroom' Cleans House, Jettisons Writers

HBO’s much maligned new series “The Newsroom” may have received the all-clear for a second season, but it won’t have many of the writers who helped craft the initial 10 episodes.

The Hollywood Reporter:

According to HBO, the Aaron Sorkin drama set behind the scenes of a cable news network is replacing about half of its writing staff, though one source close to the show tells The Hollywood Reporter that everyone on the show’s writing staff except for Corinne Kinsbury has been let go. News of the shakeup was first reported by The Daily.
