Show Me A Hero HBO

The HBO Mini Series Ballers Head-On Episode 9 premieres debuts its first two parts back-to-back SUNDAY, AUG. 16 (8:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), followed by two parts on both of the subsequent Sundays – Aug. 23 and 30 – at the same time.

Summary: In an America generations removed from the greatest civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the young mayor 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 neighborhoods of his town. His attempt to do so tears the entire city apart, paralyzes the municipal government and, ultimately, destroys the mayor and his political future.

The cast includes Oscar Isaac (“Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens”) as Mayor Nick Wasicsko; Catherine Keener (Oscar® nominee for “Capote” and “Being John Malkovich”) as longtime East Yonkers resident Mary Dorman; Alfred Molina (“Love Is Strange,” HBO’s “The Normal Heart”) as Councilman Henry J. Spallone; Winona Ryder (Oscar® nominee for “Little Women” and “The Age of Innocence”) as Councilwoman Vinni Restiano; LaTanya Richardson-Jackson (“Blue Bloods,” “The Watsons Go to Birmingham”) as housing project resident Norma O’Neal; Bob Balaban (“The Grand Budapest Hotel,” HBO’s “Recount”) as U.S. District Judge Leonard Sand; Jim Belushi (“The Defenders,” “According to Jim”) as incumbent Yonkers Mayor Angelo Martinelli, who lost his bid for a seventh term to Nick Wasicsko; and Jon Bernthal (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) as NAACP attorney Michael Sussman.
