HBO has confirmed that the fifth season of True Blood will premiere on Sunday, June 10th at 9/8c, while Aaron Sorkin’s new drama series The Newsroom will premiere on the cable network on Sunday June 24th at 10/9c.

Together they set out on a patriotic and quixotic mission to do the news well in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal relationships. Aaron Sorkin created the series and executive produces along with Scott Rudin and Alan Poul.
