HBO's latest miniseries Show Me a Hero is out this August and as it's written by David Simon and directed by Paul Haggis, it should be a corker.  The show follows a young Mayor in Yonkers, New York, played by the brilliant Oscar Isaac,  and his struggle with race relations in the 1960's.  Based on a non-fiction novel the show cast includes Winona Ryder, Alfred Molina, Bob Balaban and even a bit of Jim Belushi!
