HBO Renews ‘The Brink’ for Season 2

Jack Black, Tim Robbins star on Roberto and Kim Benabib’s political comedy

HBO has renewed political comedy “The Brink” for a second season.

Jack Black and Tim Robbins star on the series created by brothers Roberto and Kim Benabib.

“The Brink,” executive produced by Jerry Weintraub (“Behind the Candelabra”), is described as a dark comedy focusing on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men — Walter Larson, US Secretary of State, Alex Talbot, a lowly Foreign Service officer and Zeke Tilson, an ace Navy fighter pilot.

These three compromised souls must pull through the chaos around them to save the planet from World War Three.

Roach is also executive producing the project, as is Roberto Benabib (“Weeds”), who wrote Season 1 episodes with Kim.

Pablo Schreiber, Maribeth Monroe and Esai Morales also star.
