HBO announced (per THR) that its new drama series Here and Now is one and done. The series starred Academy Award winners Tim Robbins (Mystic River) and Holly Hunter (The Piano) as the heads of a family of multiracial adopted children who find their bonds tested after one child begins seeing something the rest cannot see.
The series’ creator, Alan Ball, is best known for creating the widely successful HBO dramas True Blood and Six Feet Under. Here and Now debuted to negative reviews from critics and an underwhelming viewership, totaling around two million viewers for the entire season.
“I hope that this show could be a forum for philosophical and ethical discussions; discussions about race, gender, sexuality and the nature of reality,” Ball told THR of the series.
This marks the second short-lived HBO show for Robbins, who recently starred in The Brink with Jack Black. This was Hunter’s biggest return to television since her 2013 role in Jane Campion’s Golden Globe-winning Top of the Lake in 2013. Hunter will return to the big screen this year with The Incredibles 2, the latest trailer for which you can watch here.
