Alan Ball’s (True Blood, Six Feet Under) new series Here and Now is available on Digital Download now.
The series is available to pre-order on Blu-ray and DVD ahead of its release on 6th August 2018.
Here and Now is a provocative, darkly comic meditation on the disparate forces polarising contemporary America, exploring what it’s like to be an “other” today. The show stars Tim Robbins (Mystic River), Holly Hunter (The Piano), Jerrika Hinton (Grey’s Anatomy), Daniel Zovatto (Don’t Breathe), Raymond Lee (Mozart in the Jungle), Sosie Bacon (The Closer), Andy Bean (Power), Joe Williamson (Looking) and Peter Macdissi (Six Feet Under).
On the surface, the Bayer-Boatwright’s of Portland, Oregon are the model of a progressive, multiracial family. Greg (Robbins) is a respected philosophy professor and author; his wife, Audrey (Hunter) is a former therapist turned conflict-resolution consultant for middle high schools.
Greg and Audrey have three adopted children, Ashley, Duc and Ramon, and a biological daughter, Kristen. But as Audrey prepares for Greg’s 60th birthday party, deep cracks begin to appear in the domestic façade, threatening to upend their very way of life, and they are eventually forced to take Ramon to Dr. Farid Shokrani, a Muslim psychiatrist with demons of his own.
Here and Now is executive produced by Alan Ball, Peter Macdissi (Banshee, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks) and David Knoller (Big Love).
