New York stage alums Holly Hunter and Raymond Lee are among the stars of Alan Ball's (Six Feet Under, American Beauty) upcoming Here and Now. The series will begin its ten-episode season February 11 on HBO.
Hunter (Crimes of the Heart, Oscar winner for The Piano) and Lee (Mozart in the Jungle, Theater World Award winner for Off-Broadway's Vietgone) will be joined by Oscar winner Tim Robbins (Mystic River), Jerrika Hinton (Grey’s Anatomy), Daniel Zovatto (Don’t Breathe), Sosie Bacon (The Closer), Andy Bean (Power), Joe Williamson (Looking), and Peter Macdissi (Six Feet Under).
Executive producers are Ball, Peter Macdissi, and David Knoller.
The series follows the Bayer-Boatwrights of Portland, Oregon, who are—on the surface—the model of a progressive, multiracial family. But as Audrey prepares for her husband Greg’s 60th birthday party, deep cracks begin to appear in the domestic façade, threatening to upend their very way of life.
Hunter most recently appeared on the New York stage in 2014's Sticks and Bones with the New Group.
