Dan Rather’s “Aaron Sorkin: The Big Interview,” Promo #1 for June 9, 2014

Join us for THE BIG INTERVIEW, our series which features interviews with some of the most well-known talent from different corners of the entertainment industry. On Monday we sit down with Aaron Sorkin, Oscar-winning screenwriter and creator of The Newsroom. In this clip Sorkin tells us why The Newsroom is set in the recent past — and it’s not why you might think. In the hour he also talks about the process behind writing the show and opens up about something he says he’s not used to hearing, criticism. “Aaron Sorkin: The Big Interview” airs June 9, 2014 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT on AXS TV.
