I know there are a lot of Olivia Munn haters out there who’re shocked that she can consistently land new gigs, even though her last gig miserably bombed (NBC’s “Perfect Couples”), but hey, you can’t fault her for using her various assets, which includes her personality, to score new projects!
This latest project is the equivalent of hitting the lottery, so major props to Olivia & her team! She’s is one of the stars of the new HBO drama series “The Newsroom” by the one & only Aaron Sorkin (“The Social Network,” “A Few Good Men,” “Moneyball,” etc). Other regulars on the show include Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, Dev Patel, John Gallagher, Jr., Thomas Sadoski, and Sam Waterston. The show is scheduled to premiere on June 24, 2012.
Here’s more juice:
The series is set behind the scenes at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN) and centers around anchor Will (Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer Mackenzie MacHale (Emily Mortimer), newsroom staff Maggie (Alison Pill), Jim (John Gallagher, Jr.), Sloan (Olivia Munn), Neal (Dev Patel), Don (Thomas Sadoski), and their boss Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston).
