I was totally sold when the teaser for HBO’s The Brink, a half-hour, ten-episode political satire series about the misadventures of Jack Black in Pakistan, popped a month ago. The just-released trailer makes me feel even more revved. Boilerplate: “Created by Roberto Benabib (Weeds, Ally McBeal) and Kim Benabib, the series takes place during the onset of a military coup in Pakistan. Black’s character is the only U.S. intelligence guy left in the region. But when the U.S. President (Esai Morales) and the Secretary of State (Tim Robbins) order him to be their eyes and ears, things naturally go awry. Jay Roach (Recount) has directed the pilot episode. The Brink starts on Sunday, 6.21.
