Jack Black is back, and he's coming to HBO! The cable network has ordered up the funnyman's series The Brink that will also star Tim Robbins, Deadline reports. Written by former Weeds executive producer Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim Benabib, the dark comedy will focus on "a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: U.S. Secretary of State Walter Hollander (Robbins); Alex Coppins (Black), a lowly Foreign Service officer; and Zeke Callahan (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 III."
