Six Feet Under and True Blood creator Alan Ball has developed a new series for HBO called Here and Now. I'm a huge fan of the shows that Ball has previously created, so I have no doubt that this new series is going to turn out great.
The show centers on a multi-racial family and things seem to be going fine until one of the adopted kids starts seeing things. We have a teaser trailer for you to watch today that gives us a little taste of what this series will entail and I'm intrigued.
Here and Now stars Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter as the parents of the family and the children are played by Jerrika Hinton, Raymond Lee and Daniel Zovatto, and their lone biological child, played by Sosie Bacon. Here's the synopsis:
This untitled series focuses on a contemporary multi-racial family: a philosophy professor, his lawyer wife, their three adopted children from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia, and their sole biological child. This seemingly perfect, progressive family is in actuality harboring deep rifts. Then, one of the children begins to see things others cannot. Is it mental illness? Or something else? The series is a tragicomic meditation on the complicated forces at work on us all in America today.
Here and Now arrives on HBO February 2018.
