Plans are firming up for a high-profile TV drama series with an A-list cast and an Oscar- and Emmy-winning show creator. HBO announced that “Here and Now,” from “Six Feet Under” and “True Blood” creator Alan Ball, will premiere Feb. 11.
The series, which stars Oscar and Golden Globe winner Tim Robbins and Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Holly Hunter, is described by HBO as ” a provocative and darkly comic meditation on the disparate forces polarizing present-day American culture, as experienced by the members of a progressive multi-ethnic family — a philosophy professor and his wife, their adopted children from Vietnam, Liberia and Colombia, and their sole biological child — and a contemporary Muslim family, headed by a psychiatrist who is treating one of their children.”
Also starring in the series are Jerrika Hinton, Daniel Zovatto, Raymond Lee, Sosie Bacon, Andy Bean, Joe Williamson and Peter Macdissi.
“Here and Now” is executive produced by Ball along with Peter Macdissi and David Knoller.
