High Fidelity - Jack Black And Tim Robbins To Co-star In Comedy Series

High Fidelity co-stars Jack Black and Tim Robbins are re-teaming and heading to the small screen in a new dark comedy.

Bosses at America's Hbo network have given the go-ahead for The Brink, a Tv series centred on three men who are forced to battle a geopolitical crisis and save the planet from World War Iii.

Robbins is set to play the U.S. Secretary of State and Black takes on the role of a lowly Foreign Service officer.

Actors Aasif Mandvi, Esai Morales and Eric Ladin are also set to star in the series, which will be director by Austin Powers filmmaker Jay Roach.

Robbins and Black previously appeared together in 2000 cult music film High Fidelity.
