 On the surface, the Bayer-Boatwrights of Portland, Ore. are the model of a progressive, multiracial family. Greg is a respected philosophy professor and author; his wife, Audrey, is a former therapist turned conflict-resolution consultant for middle and high schools. Greg and Audrey have three adopted children, Ashley, Duc and Ramon, and a biological daughter, Kristen. But as Audrey prepares for Greg’s 60th birthday party, deep cracks begin to appear in the domestic façade, threatening to upend their very way of life, and they are eventually forced to take Ramon to Dr. Farid Shokrani, a Muslim psychiatrist with demons of his own.

                Created by Alan Ball (Emmy® winner for HBO’s “Six Feet Under”; Oscar® winner for “American Beauty”), the drama series HERE AND NOW begins its ten-episode season SUNDAY, FEB. 11 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO. Tim Robbins (Oscar® winner for “Mystic River”) and Holly Hunter (Emmy® winner for HBO’s “The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom”; Oscar® winner for “The Piano”) star in the show, which offers a provocative, darkly comic meditation on the disparate forces polarizing contemporary America, exploring what it’s like to be an “other” today.

TROUBLE NO MORE, a feature-length presentation starring Bob Dylan, debuts MONDAY, FEB. 26 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on CINEMAX.

            Directed  by Jennifer Lebeau, TROUBLE NO MORE spotlights Dylan’s passionate, faith-based music, featuring electrifying, digitally restored footage from concerts in Toronto and Buffalo in late-April and early-May 1980, which is interspersed with fiery sermons written by Luc Sante and delivered by Michael Shannon (HBO Films’ upcoming “Fahrenheit 451”; Oscar® nominee for “Nocturnal Animals” and “Revolutionary Road”).

            Bob Dylan’s controversial “gospel” period began with the release of the album “Slow Train Coming” (1979), which was followed by “Saved” (1980) and ended with “Shot of Love” (1981). TROUBLE NO MORE showcases one of Dylan’s most exciting bands, consisting of Spooner Oldham and Terry Young on keyboards, Fred Tackett on guitar, Tim Drummond on bass, Jim Keltner on drums and backing singers Clydie King, Gwen Evans, Mona Lisa Young, Regina McCrary and Mary Elizabeth Bridges.

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 8, 2018 – HBO has entered into a deal with Crooked Media, the media company founded by Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett and Tommy Vietor, to bring the hit political podcast “Pod Save America” to the network this fall for a series of hour-long specials on the campaign trail, it was announced today by Casey Bloys, president, HBO Programming.

            “At a time when politics affect the lives of Americans more than ever before, ‘Pod Save America’ has brought fresh and thoughtful voices to the discussion,” said Bloys. “We’re excited to share the irreverent and entertaining insights of these savvy observers with the HBO audience.”

“The best part of ‘Pod Save America’ is taking the show on the road and meeting activists, candidates and people who are getting involved in politics for the first time,” say Favreau, Lovett and Vietor. “They know that the 2018 midterms are the most important elections of our lifetime, and the energy and excitement on the campaign trail is infectious. We are so grateful that HBO is taking a chance on us, even though these live shows will have so few dragons and sex robots.”

            “Pod Save America” is a twice-weekly podcast hosted by Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer and Tommy Vietor, former aides to President Obama, who are joined by journalists, politicians, comedians and activists for a freewheeling conversation about politics, the press and the challenges posed by the Trump presidency.
