The Brink

Tim Robbins and Jack Black will lead a dark comedy series for HBO about a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men. “Robbins is set to play Walter Hollander, U.S. secretary of state who is billed as a man of big appetites and little patience for the war mongers in the Situation Room, while Black will take on the part of Alex Coppins, a lowly foreign service officer reluctantly caught on the ground in the middle of it all. The third role, ace Navy fighter pilot Zeke Callahan, has not yet been cast.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
