  • 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.

  • In the black-and-white ’50s sitcom realm of Pleasantville, mom always has a yummy meatloaf in the oven, the home team never loses and romance is a shy peck on the cheek. Until now. Because modern, real-life teens David (Tobey Maguire) and Jennifer (Reese Witherspoon) are mysteriously zapped into that TV world. 

    With them come ideas and passions that turn the town’s cozy perfection into something more challenging and colourful. From Gary Ross (Big, Seabiscuit) comes an imaginative fantasy that maintains its humour even as it reveals its own true colours about embracing life in all its messiness and unpredictability. Don’t touch that dial. Stay tuned to life in Pleasantville.

  • Jim Carrey (Bruce Almighty, The Mask, Liar, Liar) and Jeff Daniels (Speed, Fly Away Home) are too lame to live – and too dense to die – as a pair of deliriously dim-witted pals on a cross-country road trip to return a briefcase full of cash to its rightful owner.

    Along the way they’ll confound cops, kidnappers and anyone and everyone who has the misfortune of crossing their paths in this comic caper for every idiot in the family!
