Here at Unreality TV we’re gearing ourselves up for a busy few months in television when a number of shows are set to make their returns to our screens.

One of the big shows we’re excited to see return, despite it being the final season is hit HBO drama ‘The Newsroom’ featuring Jeff Daniels as anchorman Will McAvoy.

The Newsroom‘ follows news anchor Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels) as he leads the news team at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (ACN).

A few weeks ago HBO released a short teaser trailer to get everyone excited for the return of the show and it most definitely worked – even if the trailer focused on an office printer.

The trailer has now seen a spoof version made for ‘Veronica Mars’ spin-off show ‘Play It Again, Dick’ be released by CW Seed.

While the lines printed for ‘The Newsroom’ trailer were serious, news-like stories the ‘Veronica Mars’ spin-off trailer makes use of more comedy lines.

“This funeral is turning into sausage fest,” and, “Everyone else is outside at the clothing-optional pool.” can be seen being printed out for the new show.

Focusing on Ryan Hansen, ‘Play It Again, Dick’ will show what happens as he tries to get rid of the heat from his recent Kickstarter movie.

To get out of the trouble he’s landed himself in, he’s seen pitching a spin-off for his character Dic Casablancas. The show has been described by creator Rob Thomes as having “more in common with ‘Party Down’ tonally.”

Fans of ‘Veronica Mars’ will be glad to hear that other original cast members including Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Enrico Colatoni, Percy Daggs III, Ken Marino and Chris Lowell are set to return to the spin-off series.
