A world crisis plays out like a three-dimensional chess game through the perspective of three disparate and desperate men in this HBO comedy series. Created by brothers Roberto Benabib and Kim Benabib, the show begins under threat of a coup in Pakistan when a rogue general seizes control of the country and its nuclear arsenal, leaving the fate of the world on the shoulders of three unlikely American heroes: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Larson (Tim Robbins), lowly Foreign Service officer Alex Talbott (Jack Black), and ace Navy fighter pilot Zeke 'Z-Pak' Tilson (Pablo Schreiber), who has a lucrative side business dealing prescription drugs. From the turbulent Middle East to the White House situation room, 'The Brink' provides a wild ride across multiple time zones to show how the foibles, egos and rivalries of political leaders can take us to the brink of world war.
