Simply put: HBO’s The Deuce is television’s most anticipated new show of the fall and it’s not even really close. The series hails from David Simon, who created The Wire otherwise known as the greatest TV drama of all time (disagree at your own peril), and packs an absolutely stacked cast. Among the names are (deep breath) James Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Gary Carr, Dominique Fishback and more.
Set in 1970s New York City, specifically the then-seedy and salacious Times Square, The Deuce explores the start of the commercial porn industry and the pilot is a sight to behold. Expertly written, the first episode manages to swiftly introduce a wide swath of characters in attention-grabbing ways while setting up their overall arcs for the season. Bursting with energy and decked out in a run-down look, The Deuce could be TV’s next great drama. Big ups to premiere director Michelle MacLaren, who has overseen some of your favorite episodes of Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, The Leftovers and Game of Thrones.
