Oscar Isaac, Catherine Keener join new HBO miniseries from 'The Wire' creator
HBO has assembled a star-studded team on both sides of the camera for its six-hour miniseries based on Lisa Belkin's 1999 Yonkers-set housing desegregation book "Show Me a Hero."
The project will be adapted by David Simon and William F. Zorzi, with Paul Haggis directing.
"Star Wars" sequel actor and "Inside Llewyn Davis" star Oscar Isaac will play Nick Wasicsko, “the youngest big-city mayor in the nation," according to EW.com.
Indie favorite Catherine Keener will play Mary Dorman, described as "an East Yonkers homeowner who comes to a remarkable realization during the battle over where to build low-income housing."
It's unclear when production will begin on "Show Me a Hero" or when it will be ready to air.
