A potential revolution in Pakistan demands the intervention of the US government, in the form of a goofy Secretary of State and his foreign service officer on the ground. That’s the plot behind the upcoming HBO comedy The Brink, starring Jack Black (as the foreign service officer) and Tim Robbins (the Secretary of State).
Now, a trailer for The Brink has hit the internet, giving viewers a taste of the kind of irreverent humor they can expect from the series. It also stars Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi, but the main thing you need to remember is that it has nothing at all to do with The Jinx, another HBO project with a distressingly similar title.
You can watch the trailer for The Brink below, provided you’ve got a minute to spare and the brief sight of Tim Robbins engaging in light S&M isn’t NSFW wherever you are. And for more on the show, which is set to premiere on June 21st, head to its official site right here.
