HBO's The Newsroom will Pitch, "Bigfoot is Real"

The cast of The Newsroom, Dev Patel (far left) pitches Bigfoot is Real in episode 4
It may be a fleeting moment in a single episode of paid cable. But this is not just any TV show. This is The Newsroom written by Aaron Sorkin, one of the most famous writers in entertainment. Aaron Sorkin is an Academy and Emmy award winning American screenwriter, producer, and playwright, whose works include A Few Good Men, The West Wing, the Facebook docudrama The Social Network. 

His newest venture is The Newsroom on HBO, an attempt to romanticize what happens behind the scenes of a TV news program. 

According to the episode guide for season one, on July 15, 2012 Newsroom blogger, Neal Sampat (Dev Patel) will pitch a Bigfoot is real segment for the nightly news show.

EPISODE 1.04 : I'll Try to Fix YouWill's "mission to civilize" takes a hit when he finds himself in the tabloid spotlight. Wade approaches Will with info on the government's flagging ability to fight financial crime; Don gets Maggie to fix Jim up with her roommate Lisa; Sloan strikes out as a matchmaker; and Neal's "Bigfoot is real" pitch falls on deaf ears. Against Reese's wishes, Will refuses to follow the media rumor mill and make a call on a breaking story. src: AceShowbiz
