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.”July 26, 2017 at 4:15 pm #1202166005
This will be amazing. Will it be out in time for 2018 Emmys?July 29, 2017 at 5:33 am #1202168825
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.December 4, 2017 at 11:12 pm #1202429691
I hope it’s gonna be much more Six Feet Under than True Blood…December 5, 2017 at 4:22 am #1202429848
Isn’t this looking more like “The Leftovers”?December 5, 2017 at 6:31 pm #1202430476
Also, the title is “Here and Now”, not “Here, Now”.December 6, 2017 at 2:59 am #1202430820
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.
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.December 7, 2017 at 5:19 pm #1202432686
First season of True Blood was pretty good and then, besides Dennis O’Hare who should’ve won an Emmy, it was shit.December 19, 2017 at 1:09 pm #1202444657
The drama series HERE AND NOW will begin its ten-episode season SUNDAY, FEB. 11 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO.December 19, 2017 at 1:19 pm #1202444664
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.February 2, 2018 at 11:58 am #1202486072
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.February 2, 2018 at 6:39 pm #1202486242
Despite the early review, i’m still looking forward to the show.February 6, 2018 at 12:21 pm #1202488722
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 .
