The show is expected to receive an order of approximately ten episodes, though that number has yet to be finalised, Deadline reports.
In addition, the website revealed that the series will be retitled in the near future.
The show, which stars Jeff Daniels, Dev Patel, Emily Mortimer, Olivia Munn and Alison Pill, focuses on the team working in a broadcast newsroom.
In February, the Social Network scribe explained that the show will have a similar style to his previous programmes, saying that the programme will be "aspirational" and "wish fulfilment".
"They're going to lose as much as they're going to win. In other words, it's not going to be a fantasy," Sorkin explained. "They're going to be trying to do well in a context where it's very difficult to do well when there are commercial concerns and political concerns and corporate concerns."
Marisa Tomei was rumoured to be joining the series in April, but was ultimately replaced by Mortimer when negotiations with the Lincoln Lawyer actress fell through.
