HBO premiered its newest miniseries Show Me a Hero on Tuesday August 11 at Lincoln Center. Based on the 1999 best-selling novel of the same name the mini-series details a Yonkers neighborhood’s resistance to a federally-mandated public housing development in the area and how the tensions affected the city as a whole.


The exclusive event gathered director Paul Haggis and the cast, including Winona Ryder, Oscar Isaac, Catherine Keener and Jim Belushi, who joined in later for the themed after party.


Decked out with election posters from the film’s set and a sign saying “Welcome to Yonkers” the after party was a break from the heavy subject matter and guests got the chance to sip some drinks and pose with the the decor.


Attendees included Samuel L. Jackson, Mischa Barton, book author Lisa Belkin and Katie Couric.


The 6-episode mini-series will premiere on August 16.
