    Synopsis: “A multi-racial family made up of husband, wife, three adopted children from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia and one biological child, find their bonds tested when one of the children begins seeing things which the rest cannot.

    Cast: Holly Hunter, Tim Robbins, Sosie Bacon, Jerrika Hinton, Raymond Lee, Daniel Zovatto.

    A nice quote about this serie: “Bloys has expressed confidence that Westworld is the heir to Game of Thrones’ flagship status, so the focus now is on finding different kinds of drama — not necessarily expansive genre undertakings. “We didn’t have a lot of variation in drama,” he said of the network he inherited a year ago. “I’m trying to get high-quality dramas with a lot of different feels to them. For a while, we were just looking for the next big tentpole.” One different kind of hourlong on the horizon comes from network favorite Alan Ball. The family drama, once titled Here, Now, is described by Bloys as “a mix of True Blood and Six Feet Under.”

    This will be amazing. Will it be out in time for 2018 Emmys?

    That’s very very unlikely. I wouldn’t even bet on it being out in time for 2019 Emmys.

    Ready to see what Alan Ball comes up with next. I just watched the pilot to “Midnight, Texas,” and it’s such warmed-over network silliness that “True Blood” did so much better on HBO years ago. Premise and cast both sound promising. Hope that’s not the title they stick with.

    This will be released in February AKA in time for the next Emmys. Add Holly Hunter to the race.

    I hope it’s gonna be much more Six Feet Under than True Blood…

    Isn’t this looking more like “The Leftovers”?

    Also, the title is “Here and Now”, not “Here, Now”.

    Looks like I was wrong. Good thing, things went a lot faster than I expected.

    Hopefully this is Six Feet Under good and not True Blood bad.

    First season of True Blood was pretty good and then, besides Dennis O’Hare who should’ve won an Emmy, it was shit.

    If this becomes a hit, could it help Holly Hunter in the Oscar race? If she gets nominated that is. The first two episodes of this will air right before the voting period and the third one right in the middle.

    I was hugely anticipating the show, but the early reviews aren’t very good. According to the THR review, it revolves around a bunch of liberals in post-Trump era. Ugh.

    I’m a huge fan of American Beauty, so it was the most anticipated show for me but this is getting terrible reviews. I thought this could even sneak into major Emmy races -apparently won’t be the case. Seriously, Ball is lucky if HBO renews it for one more season. It has a metascore of 42 .
