The first official trailer for Aaron Sorkin's HBO series The Newsroom, about a cable news show, has been unveiled.

The first look at the drama from the creator of The West Wing and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball shows news anchor Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) lose his objectivity when responding to a question from the crowd at a college panel.

The show will follow fictional cable news anchor Will - the Keith Olbermann of news anchors - who hosts the fictional news show News Night, at the fictional cable network, UBS.

The hourlong drama, which also stars Brits Dev Patel and Emily Mortimer, will chart Will's story as he becomes unraveled and does what ever he can to hold on to his audience.

HBO picked up Sorkin's pilot for a 10-episode series in September.
