YONKERS, NY – July 14, 2015 — Readers may be interested to know that part one  of the exclusive HBO miniseries “Show Me A Hero” debuts Sunday, August 16th, from 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT. From creator David Simon, HBO’s “Treme” and “The Wire,” and director Paul Haggis (“Crash”), and based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Lisa Belkin, this six-part miniseries explores notions of home, race and community through the lives of elected officials, bureaucrats, activists and ordinary citizens in Yonkers, NY.

In an America generations removed from the greatest civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the young mayor (Oscar Isaac) 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 entire municipal government and, ultimately, destroys the mayor and his political future.

In addition to Oscar Isaac, “Show Me A Hero” stars Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina, Winona Ryder, LaTanya Richardson-Jackson, Bob Balaban, and Jim Belushi. Directed by Paul Haggis; written by David Simon and William F. Zorzi; executive produced by David Simon, Nina K. Noble, Paul Haggis, Gail Mutrux and William F. Zorzi.

The subsequent five parts of “Show Me A Hero” debut on other Sundays – August 23rd and 30th, and September 13th, 20th, and 27th – at the same time.
