THE BRINK (HBO)
The risk of World War III is real, thanks to a paranoid Pakistan army general who gains control of the country and its formidable nuclear arsenal. The global crisis sets into motion a risky plan that entangles three disparate, desperate Americans -- womanizing, often inebriated Secretary of State Walter Larson, lowly Foreign Service officer Alex Talbot, and supreme yet compromised Navy fighter pilot Zeke Tilson. The dark comedy series stars Tim Robbins ("Mystic River") as Larson, Jack Black ("School of Rock") as Talbot, and Pablo Schreiber ("The Wire") as Tilson, with additional cast members including Aasif Mandvi, Maribeth Monroe, Eric Ladin, Esai Morales and Carla Gugino.
