The dark comedy, starring Jack Black and Tim Robbins, was renewed, just a month after its June premiere.
“The Brink” focuses on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men. Walter Larson (Robbins), U.S. secretary of state; Alex Talbot, a lowly foreign service officer (Black); and Zeke Tilson (Pablo Schreiber), an ace Navy fighter pilot. These three compromised souls must pull through the chaos around them to save the planet from World War Three.
The series, which was created by Roberto Benabib and Kim Benabib and exec produced by Jerry Weintraub, Roberto Benabib and Jay Roach, drew just over a million viewers in its last airing.
Its timeslot partner, “Ballers,” was also recently picked up for a second season.
