The Newsroom season two TV billboards...

The Newsroom season 2 billboard
HBO's The Newsroom is back for its sophomore season and Daily Billboard for one is glad.

People seemed to be extremely polarized by the first season of Aaron Sorkin's political news drama, starring Jeff Daniels as controversial news anchor 'Will McAvoy'. Critics bemoaned about the inaccurate depiction of the news industry, the stories overly critical nature of the Republican Party, or when they were trying to cover serious subjects, fluffy love triangles getting in the way.

Daily Billboard loved it all, and the fun ensemble cast and their quirky relationships made all the politics-heavy storylines all the more palatable, and not simply like a current affairs or dull documentary series.

The striking new promotional billboard for season two perfectly sums up the show. 'Together they stand alone' indeed, in the wilderness of professional, factual journalism. Trying to avoid the overly sensational news coverage and political bias of the majority of U.S. news shows.

Daily Billboard wasn't sure how this imagery would work as a portrait format, but if anything the creative looks even more impactful and has more room to breathe, don't you think?
