Vanity Fair’s May issue has a behind the scenes look at Newsroom – you can look at some of the photos of Aaron HERE.
“I’ve always thought of myself as somebody who, when it comes to comedy or drama, I don’t do either one of them well enough to do only one of them,” Aaron Sorkin tells Vanity Fair writer James Kaplan in a May-issue sneak peek of “The Newsroom,” his series for HBO.
“I love television,” Sorkin says. “I love putting on a show every week. I love coming to work with the same people every week. I love the immediacy of it. But the price that you pay for all that is the ferocity of the schedule. We have to make a one-hour movie every nine days. So I have to write a one-hour movie every nine days. You’re writing an episode, you’re shooting an episode, and one is in postproduction while another is in pre-production, casting, and scouting. It becomes a little bit like a MASH unit.”
