Coincidentally, just as Aaron Sorkin’s “The Newsroom” is readying for HBO, a new newsroom-set Canadian series from Ken Finkleman — who previously created his own critically acclaimed series entitled “The Newsroom” — is coming to Canada’s Movie Central beginning April 9.

Finkleman is joined by an ensemble that includes Samantha Bee of “The Daily Show” playing morning show host Shandy Sommers.
