FRI, 2016-01-22

HBO has ordered a new series that will take place in Times Square during the rise of the porn industry during the 70s. From the creators of The Wire, the upcoming HBO drama The Deuce will star James Franco as mobster twins Vincent and Frankie Martino— forerunners of the sex industry.
The title of The Deuce was street slang for the block of 42nd street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues before it was cleaned up by the late 90s. The series will follow the legalization of the porn industry before the rise of HIV and the cocaine epidemic that ended the era.
Franco will also star alongside Broadway star and actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. Gyllenhaal will be playing the role of Candy, a prostitute who works her way into the porn industry.

No official airdate has been released, but it's a safe bet that Franco will probably be naked.
