The Wrap | The Brink: 'Pilot' Review

The Wrap

HBO’s new series “The Brink” is a dark comedy set in the world of U.S. government and foreign affairs. Creators/executive producers Roberto Benabib (“Weeds”) and Kim Benabib skewer those who vie, lust and live for power. With a strong cast led by Tim Robbins, Jack Black, Pablo Schreiber and Aasif Mandvi, “The Brink” aims to be closer in tone to “Dr. Strangelove” than “The West Wing,” and that bodes well for the rest of the season.

The story is too old to be commented.
