According to HBO, the Season 2 premiere of The Newsroom will follow Will (Jeff Daniels) and the "News Night" staff as they are questioned by their lawyer about a story they've aired that quickly becomes a network crisis.
A remark by Will on the show sees him pulled from the program's 9/11 anniversary coverage.
Meanwhile Jim, played by John Gallagher, Jr., volunteers to cover for an embed reporter on the Romney campaign, and Neal, played by "Slumdog Millionaire" actor Dev Patel, investigates the beginnings of Occupy Wall Street.
