‘Here And Now’: HUMANITAS Trustee Alan Ball’s Series Gets Premiere Date On HBO
HBO has set a February 11 premiere date for Here and Now, Alan Ball’s new drama series. The 10-episode first season will air Sundays at 9 PM.
Written by Six Feet Under and True Blood creator Ball, and starring Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter, Here and Now is described 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.
Jerrika Hinton, Daniel Zovatto, Raymond Lee, Sosie Bacon, Andy Bean, Joe Williamson and Peter Macdissi also star.
Ball executive produces with Peter Macdissi and David Knoller.
