EP_BOX SETS_The Brink_Jun 18
Welcome to a world of trouble!
From the turbulent streets of the Middle East, to the White House situation room, to an aircraft carrier on the Red Sea, The Brink takes us on a wild ride across multiple time zones to show how the foibles, egos and rivalries of political leaders can take us to the brink of world war. The show centres on three disparate and desperate men: Walter Larson, the U.S. Secretary of State; Alex Talbott, a lowly Foreign Service officer stationed in Islamabad; and Zeke “Z-Pak” Tilson, an ace Navy fighter pilot with a lucrative side business dealing prescription drugs. The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of these three unlikely American heroes.
“The Brink is whip-smart, featuring actors who know how to play comedy... a joy to watch” –Lincoln Journal Star
“... So funny, so inventive-and so fearless in what it has to say about geopolitics-that watching it would be pure pleasure were the events it depicts not so uncomfortably close to the perilous reality of the world in which we live.” –The New York Review
Starring Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Jack Black (School of Rock), Pablo Schreiber (American Gods).
Box set starts 7.30pm Sunday 10th June
