Episode #11: “First Thing We Do, Let’s Kill All the Lawyers”
Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 14 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)
Will (Jeff Daniels) and the “News Night” staff are questioned by their lawyer about a story they’ve aired that’s become a network crisis. An on-air remark by Will has him pulled from 9/11 anniversary coverage. Jim (John Gallagher, Jr.) volunteers to cover for an embed reporter on the Romney campaign and Neal (Dev Patel) investigates the beginnings of Occupy Wall Street.
Episode #12: “The Genoa Tip”
Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 21 (10:00-11:00 p.m.)
A tip on a story that will ultimately cripple the network starts to become more real. Mackenzie (Emily Mortimer) and Sloan (Olivia Munn) continue to push Will on drones as Don (Thomas Sadoski) urges Will to advocate for Troy Davis. Maggie (Alison Pill) is un-friended by her roommate, but gets the assignment she’s been begging for. Neal gets arrested on Wall Street.
Episode #13: “Willie Pete”
Debut: SUNDAY, JULY 28 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)
Will continues his mission to civilize by telling Nina Howard (Hope Davis) the truth. A new witness to the Genoa story emerges on Twitter, and in New Hampshire, Jim’s efforts to have his questions answered continue to fall on deaf ears.
