About the Show

The Brink is an American dark comedy television series created by Roberto Benabib and Kim Benabib which focuses on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: the US Secretary of State, a lowly Foreign Service officer and an ace Navy fighter pilot.

When a rogue general seizes control of Pakistan and its nuclear arsenal, the fate of the world rests on the shoulders of three improbable Americans: Secretary of State Walter Larson, lowly Foreign Service officer Alex Talbot and ace Navy fighter pilot Zeke Tilson.

From the turbulent streets of the Middle East, to the White House situation room, to an aircraft carrier on the Red Sea, these three compromised souls must pull through the chaos around them to save the planet from World War Three.

Executive produced by Jerry Weintraub, Roberto Benabib and Jay Roach, who also directed the pilot, and created by Roberto Benabib and Kim Benabib, the epic dark comedy series The Brink focuses on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate, desperate men.

Other series regulars include Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), Maribeth Monroe (Workaholics), Eric Ladin (The Killing, HBO's Boardwalk Empire), Esai Morales (NYPD Blue) and Geoff Pierson (Dexter).
