The Brink:

Both have intros by the actors.

I saw The Brink and thought it was basically like VEEP, only with more characters. I haven’t seen Ballers yet. Did you see? What did you think?

In addition to Facebook, the episodes are also available on HBO NOW and HBO GO. Consumers new to HBO NOW can sign up now for a free 30 day trial that includes access to the best past and current programing. The marketing team reported that the facebook likes from really helped them in propelling the show and bringing them onto the frontlines.

Created by Stephen Levinson (HBO’s Entourage®) and executive produced by Stephen Levinson, Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Peter Berg, Evan Reilly, Rob Weiss, Julian Farino and Denis Biggs, Ballers explores the whirlwind lifestyle and real-life problems of a group of former and current football players and was graded an “A-”  byEntertainment Weekly. In the series Johnson (San Andreas) portrays Spencer, a retired football superstar who is trying to reinvent himself as a financial manager for current players in sun soaked Miami.

The epic dark comedy series The Brink focuses on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate, desperate men: Secretary of State Walter Larson (Tim Robbins, Best Supporting Actor Oscar® winner for Mystic River), lowly Foreign Service officer Alex Talbot (Jack Black, Golden Globe nominee for “Bernie”) and ace Navy fighter pilot Zeke Tilson(Pablo Schreiber, HBO’s The Wire®).  The series was executive produced by Jerry Weintraub, Roberto Benabib and Jay Roach, who also directed the pilot, and was created by Roberto Benabib and Kim Benabib.
