Here’s the trailer for the new HBO Miniseries Show Me a Hero.

Looks really good.

For a high-profile national series, it also feels weirdly close to home.  First, of course, it’s set in Yonkers and deals with issues that are still reverberating around the county.  Second, Nick Wasicsko, the former Yonkers mayor and the show’s central character, is someone I knew, although not well.  And if that wasn’t enough, there is even a family/friend connection, because the series is based on a book by Lisa Belkin, whose brother Gary is a good friend of Catie’s.

Anyhow, I’ll be watching.
