Trailer Alert – The Deuce
Have you ever wanted to watch a TV show about the rise of porn in 1970s New York created by one of the mind behinds The Wire & starring James Franco? Well holy hell, may I present you The Deuce. When HBO and David Simon team up, something beautiful comes out of it (see The Wire, Generation Kill, Treme & Show Me A Hero) and if this trailer is a preview of what we can expect with The Deuce this fall, then I’m all in. By all accounts, New York City in the 70s and 80s was a fascinating and frightening time. I can’t imagine focusing on porn and prostitution from that era is going to shine a light on a lot of productive members of society, but it should be make for enthralling TV. The Deuce premiers September 10th.
