Publishers Description: When it hit the airwaves in 1996, “The Newsroom” – created, written, directed by, and starring Ken Finkleman – was hailed by the Montreal Gazette as “the funniest comedy series in the history of Canadian television.” And by the time its all-too-short run had concluded, it had secured a huge and devoted following across the country. “The Newsroom” won this legion of fans with its uniquely clever and provocative satire. Set inside Toronto’s CBC Broadcast Centre, the series blended fiction and reality in a brutally sardonic behind-the-scenes look at a fictitious TV news show and the selfish machinations of its ratings-obsessed director, George Findlay. Each episode left viewers gasping at the hilarious audacity of Ken Finkleman’s writing; in one front-page newspaper story, the series was described as “a Canadian comedy that is so irreverent it’s hard to imagine how it ever got on the air.” The Toronto Star called it “funny, nasty, unsettling…and the best thing Canadian series TV has offered. Ever.” And TV Guide pronounced it “wickedly funny satire…the hippest sitcom ever produced by the CBC.” The Newsroom: The Complete Scripts is for all those viewers who mourn the passing of this brilliantly written, subversive, and funny series. All thirteen episodes are here in their entirety.
