Producers effectively greenlighting Season 3 of HBO's "The Newsroom" in light of recent attacks in Boston.


Aaron Sorkin sits back with stars Jeff Daniels and Emily Mortimer, relieved and happy to have new material to write about for another season.

LOS ANGELES-Staff writers of the critically acclaimed HBO Series “The Newsroom” secretly cheered and collectively shared high fives amongst each other upon learning about the horrific events that happened at the Boston Marathon last week. “We obviously are not happy at all that people were hurt and we feel absolutely terrible but we are also relieved something of this magnitude finally happened because we were really struggling for new material to write about for Season 3,” said Tom Fuller, senior staff writer for the groundbreaking show that capitalizes on media exploited news stories and tragedies that happen in America and the world alike. “Season Two is going to be pretty good but after that we were just coming up with complete shit that nobody cares about, from more stories about Tim Tebow to that boring ass fiscal cliff debt ceiling thing. This attack is a God damn goldmine for us.” Fuller went on to add that had nothing happened soon, the show’s creator Aaron Sorkin was going to make the writers commit a large scale crime of their own so they would at least have something to fucking write about.
