Publish date:

Alan Ball drama Here and Now debuts on HBO Sunday, Feb. 11. There are ten episodes in the first season. HBO says the series “offers a provocative, darkly comic meditation on the disparate forces polarizing contemporary America, exploring what it’s like to be an ‘other’ today.”

Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter star.

Ball had a hit on HBO with Six Feet Under. He executive produces alongside Peter Macdissi and David Knoller.

Robbins plays Greg, a respected philosophy professor and author. Hunter plays his wife Audrey, a former therapist turned conflict-resolution consultant for middle and high schools. Greg and Audrey have three adopted children and a biological daughter.

As Audrey prepares for Greg’s 60th birthday party, HBO says “deep cracks begin to appear in the domestic façade.”
