Show Me a Hero, Acclaimed HBO Miniseries, to Air on Foxtel


Show Me a Hero, Acclaimed HBO Miniseries, to Air on Foxtel

The exclusive HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero, starring Oscar Isaac and Winona Ryder, will premiere on Foxtel’s showcase channel next month. The miniseries is based on the non-fiction book with the same name by Lisa Belkin.

From creator David Simon (HBO’s Treme and The Wire) and director Paul Haggis (Crash), this six-part miniseries explores notions of home, race and community through the lives of elected officials, bureaucrats, activists and ordinary citizens in Yonkers, New York.

In 1987, in an America generations removed from the greatest civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the young mayor Nick Wasicsko of a mid-sized American city is faced with a federal court order that says he must build a small number of low-income housing units in the white neighbourhoods of his town. His attempt to do so tears the entire city apart, paralyses the municipal government and, ultimately, destroys the mayor and his political future.

Show Me a Hero stars Oscar Isaac, Jim Belushi, Catherine Keener, Bob Balaban, Alfred Molina, and Winona Ryder. The HBO miniseries will air Mondays at 7:30 pm AEST starting August 17 on showcase. Compare Foxtel packages here.
