Watch: HBO’s Teaser for ‘The Brink’ Lands Jack Black in Pakistan

Jack Black and Tim Robbins find humor in geopolitical calamity in the teaser for HBO’s new show “The Brink.”

The black comedy is set to bow June 21 following the season two premiere of “True Detective” and fellow HBO newcomer, “Ballers.”

Robbins plays womanizing Secretary of State Walter Larson, who is counting on foreign service officer Alex Talbot (Black) and ace Navy fighter pilot Zeke Tilson (Pablo Schreiber) to solve a conflict in Pakistan that could potentially result in global turmoil. (No, really — the show is a comedy.)

Aasif Mandvi, Maribeth Monroe, Eric Ladin, Esai Morales and Geoff Pierson round out the cast. Roberto and Kim Benabib created the 10-episode series with Jerry Weintraub and Jay Roach serving as exec producers. Roach will also direct the pilot.
