The Newsroom Season 2 Episode 4 “Unintended Consequences”

The Newsroom “Unintended Consequences” Season 2 Episode 4 airs Sunday August 4 at 10 pm ET/PT.

Episode Synopsis: “Unintended Consequences” – Maggie (Alison Pill) tries to convince Rebecca (Marcia Gay Harden) that she’s fine following her shattering trip to Africa with Gary (Chris Chalk). An Occupy Wall Street protester with a Black Op lead refuses to cooperate with Neal (Dev Patel) and Jerry (Hamish Linklater) after an on-air interview with Will (Jeff Daniels) goes poorly. Jim (John Gallagher, Jr.) lands Hallie (Grace Gummer) a one-on-one, but gets heat from Mac (Emily Mortimer) as a result.

Show Summary: From the mind of Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball, comes The Newsroom, a behind-the-scenes look at the people who make a nightly cable-news program. Focusing on a network anchor (played by Jeff Daniels), his new executive producer (Emily Mortimer), the newsroom staff (John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel) and their boss (Sam Waterston), the series tracks their quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles-not to mention their own personal entanglements.
