First Look: HBO Miniseries 'Show Me a Hero' Staring Oscar Isaac


Show Me a Hero premieres Sunday, August 16 at 8/7c on HBO.


In an America generations removed from the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the young mayor (Oscar Isaac) of a mid-sized city is faced with a federal court order to 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.
