HBO announced Thursday that it had picked up a new project from “West Wing” and “The Social Network” scribe Aaron Sorkin.

The hourlong series looks at the corporate and commercial pressures a fictional cable news network faces.

It centers on a cable news anchor, played by Jeff Daniels, his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), his newsroom staff (Alison Pill, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Dev Patel, Thomas Sadoski) and their boss (Sam Waterston). 

The series has no official title so far.
