The cast has strong ties to Aaron Sorkin's television projects: Peter Krause starred as anchor Casey McCall in Sports Night (1998), Richard Schiff was communications director Toby Ziegler on The West Wing (1999), and Kari Matchett did a five-episode run on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006) as attorney Mary Tate.

All the news scrolls go from left to right, but news scrolls go right to left (at least in languages that read left to right) so you see the first words first. This makes it impossible to read. The filmmakers did this intentionally, and it's up to the viewer to decide why they did it this way.
