“Here and Now”, a new drama series from acclaimed director Alan Ball, will debut on HBO on February 12, the same day as in the US. Thai viewers can watch it on HBO GO On AIS PLAY And AIS PLAYBOX.

The brand new drama series comes from Oscar and Emmy winner Ball (“Six Feet Under”, “True Blood”) and stars Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter.

The show is a provocative and darkly comic meditation on the disparate forces polarising present-day American culture, as experienced by the members of a progressive multi-ethnic family – a philosophy professor and his wife (Robbins and Hunter), their adopted children from Vietnam, Liberia and Colombia, and their sole biological child – and a contemporary Muslim family, headed by a psychiatrist who is treating one of their children.

Jerrika Hinton, Daniel Zovatto, Raymond Lee, Sosie Bacon, Andy Bean, Joe Williamson and Peter Macdissi also star.
