The Brink: HBO Orders Jack Black and Tim Robbins TV Series

HBO Deadline reports that HBO has ordered a new comedy series called The Brink.

Written by Roberto Benabib (Weeds) and his brother Kim Benabib, The Brink is a dark comedy that focuses on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate (and desperate) men — US Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Tim Robbins); lowly Foreign Service officer Alex Coppins (Jack Black); and an ace Navy fighter pilot named Zeke Callahan (Pablo Schreiber). They must pull through the chaos around them to save the planet from World War III.

Co-stars include Aasif Mandvi, Maribeth Monroe, Geoff Pierson, Esai Morales and Eric Ladin. No word on how many episodes have been ordered or when the series will start airing.
