Here and Now
A fresh and candid look at the complicated forces at work in America today, as seen through the eyes of a progressive, multi-racial family grappling with challenges both familiar and preternatural.
Created by Oscar and Emmy winner Alan Ball, this HBO drama series focuses on a contemporary multiracial family – a philosophy professor, his obsessive wife, their three adopted children from Liberia, Vietnam and Colombia, and a sole biological child – as it faces a series of life changes and emotional challenges.
As we learn over the course of Season 1, this seemingly perfect, progressive family is in actuality harboring deep rifts, as well as some divisive secrets. When one of the children begins to see things others cannot, confusion reigns. Is it mental illness, or something else?
Featuring a stellar cast led by Oscar winners Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins, Here And Now is a funny, timely, thought-provoking meditation on the complicated forces at work on us all in America today.
