Pin It

HBO renews drama series The Deuce for a second season. Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon (HBO’s The Wire), the new series starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal began its eight-episode season on Sunday, September 17. New episodes can be seen every Sunday night.

The Deuce follows the rise of the porn culture in New York from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world of the sex trade from the moment when both a liberalizing cultural revolution in American sexuality and new legal definitions of obscenity created a billion-dollar industry that is now an elemental component of the American cultural landscape. Beginning in 1971, the show follows a cast of barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police and nightlife denizens as they swirl through a world of sex, crime, high times and violence and the porn business begins its climb from Mafia-backed massage parlors and film labs to legitimacy and cultural permanence.

 Season one credits include: George Pelecanos, David Simon, Nina Kostroff Noble and James Franco as executive producers; Richard Price as co-executive producer; and Marc Henry Johnson and Maggie Gyllenhaal as producers.
