HBO Takes Jack Black and Tim Robbins to The Brink


Jack Black and Tim Robbins are set to star in “The Brink,” an upcoming dark comedy series from HBO and executive producers Roberto Benabib, Jay Roach and Jerry Weintraub.

The show will follow three men: Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins), foreign service officer Alex Coppins (Black) and Navy pilot Zeke Callahan (yet to be cast) as they each deal with the same massive geopolitical crisis from their own unique perspective.

Benabib will provide the screenplay for the pilot with Roach planning on directing. Roach previously helmed the HBO telefilms “Recount” and “Game Change.”
