Series Summary: “The Newsroom” is presented much like “The Larry Sanders Show”, but instead of being behind the scenes at a talk show it is set at – you guessed it – a news room. As a result, it is much edgier. The producer and anchors are completely self-absorbed and seem oblivious to the issues they are reporting on. Guest appearances are provided by commentators and interview subjects such as directors and authors, rather than actors, which is a refreshing change from the constant media bombardment of big names we are used to.
Episode Summary: When it is decided to hire a new co-anchor, Jim feels his job is in jeopardy.
Amanda’s Role: Amanda plays Lindsay Ward, she is the new co-anchor of Jim.
