Deadline reports that Grace Gummer is set to appear in a multi-episode story arc on the second season of HBO's THE NEWSROOM. The actress will portray 'Hallie Shea', described as "an embedded reporter covering the Mitt Romney campaign." 

Created by Aaron Sorkin (Oscar(R) winner for writing "The Social Network," executive producer and writer of the multiple Emmy(R) winner "The West Wing"), the new HBO drama series follows a news team on its quixotic mission to reclaim the legacy of Murrow and Cronkite in the face of a fickle audience, corporate mandates and tangled personal relationships.

The series is executive produced by Sorkin, Scott Rudin (the Oscar(R) winner "No Country for Old Men") and Alan Poul (HBO's multiple Emmy(R) winner "Six Feet Under"). Jeff Daniels (Golden Globe nominee for "The Squid and the Whale," "Something Wild" and "The Purple Rose of Cairo") stars as Will McAvoy and Emily Mortimer ("Hugo," "Shutter Island") stars as MacKenzie McHale.

Gummer has appeared on Broadway in this year's production of The Columnist as Abigail and in the 2011 Broadway revival of Arcadia as Chloe Coverly. The actress, who currently stars in The CW series Emily Owens, MD, had a guest starring role on last season's 'Smash' on NBC. Her other TV credits include Nickelodeon's 'Gigantic.'
