The Brink - Season 2
- Seasons: 1
The Brink is an all-new HBO comedy series that focuses on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: Walter Larson, the U.S. Secretary of State; Alex Talbott, a lowly Foreign Service officer stationed in Islamabad; and Zeke “Z-Pak” Tilson, an ace Navy fighter pilot with a lucrative side business dealing prescription drugs. The epic dark-comedy series 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 these three unlikely American heroes. From the turbulent streets of the Middle East, to the White House situation room, to an aircraft carrier on the Red Sea, The Brink takes us on 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.
