The Brink may have succeeded in staving off its titular precipice for a second season, but HBO surprisingly seems to have pushed the Jack Black - Tim Robbins geopolitical comedy right back over. The network has officially rescinded its Season 2 renewal, opting instead to cancel The Brink outright.
HBO’s geopolitical comedy The Brink seemed somewhat touch-and-go for a bit, as Dwayne Johnson’s Ballers picked up a Season 2 renewal, while Brink’s all-star cast of Tim Robbins, Jack Black and Aasif Mandvi drew closer to expiring contracts. That said, The Brink made it to the very edge with a Season 2 pickup, confirming its return for 2016.
HBO’s upcoming geopolitical comedy (come on, how often do you get to say that?) The Brink has already stirred up international trouble by its first teaser, but with a June 21 premiere fast approaching, the Jack Black-Tim Robbins venture has declared open season. Check out the longest look yet at The Brink with a new trailer and photo set!
HBO surprised all of us yesterday with the trailer premiere of True Detective Season 2, but buried within the announcement was that Dwayne Johnson’s Ballers and Jack Black geopolitical comedy The Brink would also premiere on June 21. Now, both series have their very own trailers to take in as well, so take a look!
The year may be coming to a close, but rolling over in 2015 will bring one of HBO's most exciting lineups to date. Check out our first look at official footage from 'Game of Thrones' season 5, J.J. Abrams' 'Westworld' reboot, The Rock's 'Ballers,' Jack Black's 'The Brink' and many more in a new year-end trailer from HBO!
HBO will shed an impressive amount of its programming over the course of 2014, airing final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies,' so it isn't a surprise to see a star-studded pilot getting the fast track. To that end, HBO's Jay Roach-directed geopolitical comedy 'The Brink,' starring Jack Black and Tim Robbins, has already been given a series order.
Jack Black and Tim Robbins may not be the box-office draws they once were, but could they pull in the HBO crowd? We'll find out, as the premium cable network has recruited the duo to headline a new dark comedy pilot from director Jay Roach, taking the world of geopolitical crises to 'The Brink'!
