Creator and executive producer Alan Ball (True Blood and Six Feet Under) brings an “engaging and provocative” (Newsday) exploration of America through the eyes of a multiracial family in “Here and Now”. Starring Oscar-winners Tim Robbins (Mystic River) and Holly Hunter (The Piano), the new HBO drama offers a darkly comic meditation on complicated forces at work during contemporary times, exploring what it’s like to be an “other” in today’s America.
“Here and Now” follows the Bayer-Boatwrights, a progressive, suburban family led by philosophy profesor, Greg (Robbins), and conflict-resolution consultant, Aubrey (Hunter), in Portland, Oregon. They’re a Caucasian couple with three now-grown adopted children from Liberia, Vietnam, and Colombia, as well as one teenage biological daughter. Although the Bayer-Boatwrights are materially rich, each member lacks happiness or fulfillment behind a seemingly perfect façade.
