Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter star.

Ball had a hit on HBO with Six Feet Under. He executive produces alongside Peter Macdissi and David Knoller.

Robbins plays Greg, a respected philosophy professor and author. Hunter plays his wife, Audrey, a former therapist turned conflict-resolution consultant for middle and high schools. Greg and Audrey have three adopted children and a biological daughter.

As Audrey prepares for Greg’s 60th birthday party, “deep cracks begin to appear in the domestic façade,” HBO said.
