TV show description:
From creator Alan Ball who executive produces with Peter Macdissi, the Here and Now TV show is a comedy-drama about life in modern-day America. The series follows a progressive white couple, Greg (Robbins) and Audrey (Hunter), and their multi-ethnic brood, as well as a contemporary Muslim psychiatrist (Macdissi).
When Audrey and Greg met and fell in love at Berkeley, they decided to adopt children from around the globe. As this decision was born of a desire to do good in the world, they chose to adopt from places where the US had done harm.
Today, they have four children. Their son Duc (Lee) is from Vietnam, while Ramon (Zovatto) hails from Colombia. They adopted daughter Ashley (Hinton) from Nigeria, and their youngest child is a biological daughter, Kristen (Bacon). Together this family is trying to find their way in a world hellbent on going mad.
The characters experience life in unique ways. Who they are, how they identify, and how they know themselves to be perceived all influence their perspectives on various situations. While they don’t always make the best choices, they’re all struggling to live authentically.
About the human condition at its heart, Here and Now ponders how people keep hope alive, even in these dark and confusing times.
