Aaron Sorkin Cans His Newsroom Writing Staff

The Daily is reporting that Aaron Sorkin has gotten rid of his entire Newsroom writing staff, with the exception of his ex-girlfriend Corinne Kinsbury.

“Every year each show reassesses the needs of its writing staffs. This process is nothing out of the ordinary,” an HBO rep told The Daily.

The Newsroom had 10 credited writers in its premiere season. HBO renewed the show for a second season after its second show aired.

Update – 08/01/12: During the TCA panel for The Newsroom, Sorkin denied both aspects of The Daily article, saying he had not fired the writing staff and Kinsbury never was his girlfriend:

“Seeing that in print is scaring the hell out of the writing staff,” Sorkin said. “They’re acting very strange. They’re coming to work early, being polite to me, and I want the old gang back. I love the writing staff.”
