Plot Synopsis

Created by Alan Ball, HERE AND NOW is a one-hour drama series that centers on the Bayer-Boatwright famaily, the model of a progressive, multiracial family living in of Portland, OR. Greg is a respected philosophy professor and author; his wife, Audrey, is a former therapist turned conflict resolution consultant for middle and high schools. Greg and Audrey have three adopted children, Ashley, Duc and Ramon, and a biological daughter, Kristen. They adopted children from different countries and backgrounds in an effort to create a family that reflects the multicultural potential of the country. But as Audrey prepares for Greg's 60th birthday party, deep cracks begin to appear in the domestic facade, threatening to upend their very way of life. The Colombian-born Ramon, who's starting a relationship with Henry (Andy Bean), a barista, begins therapy with Dr. Farid Shokrani after hallucinogenic encounters with the numbers "11:11." Duc , adopted from Vietnam, enjoys the fruits of a lucrative career as a motivational architect, but his celibacy troubles the family. Liberian-born Ashley, who runs a retail-fashion business, begins to struggle with her identity as an African-American woman in modern-day America and is finding more and more reason to shake up her marriage with her husband, Malcolm. And Kristen, the youngest child at 17, chafes at her banal life and heritage, especially compared to her more exotic siblings.
On Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT, HBO premiered "It's Here," the season finale of HERE AND NOW. Ramon goes missing after a disturbing family incident; Audrey clashes with Steve; Ashley and Malcolm weigh the pros and cons of a corporate future; Farid's guilt drives him to extremes; a cataclysmic event shakes the family to its core.
