Aaron Sorkin’s Cable News Network Project Awaits Greenlight At HBO

Aaron Sorkin’s Cable News Network Project Awaits Greenlight At HBO – Deadline.com:


For the past few months, HBO has been talking to Aaron Sorkin about his long-gestating drama set behind the scenes at a nightly cable news show. However, with him busy on the awards circuit with his latest film, The Social Network, negotiations have been going slowly as have been Sorkin's rewrites. But he has been doing so many press interviews that he recently let the news slip. There is no deal in place but when all is set and done, something expected to happen after the Academy Awards, Sorkin's project is on track to get a pilot order by HBO.
That it is for HBO is encouraging. Too soon to say it sounds like Sports Night meets Countdown, I suppose, but it won't stop me from hoping we get lots of Sorkin-penned Special Comments.

Also, "when all is set and done"?
