HBO has released character posters for the upcoming season of The Newsroom. As we previously reported, season two will focus on the 2012 Presidential campaign, but EW reports that the season will begin on August 23, 2011 (the day Muammar Gaddafi’s Tripoli compound was captured by rebel forces) and also cover major events including “the Tea Party/American Taliban, the general election including the primaries and conventions, Trayvon Martin, the Affordable Care Act, and drones,” because Aaron Sorkin wants to throw in his two cents but use a TV series instead of a blog. The new posters cleverly play up Sorkin’s impeccable one-liners, but also use the very serious reporters staring pensively.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. The Newsroom returns July 14th.
