TV Deuce, The (HBO 2017, James Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal) Published 1 year ago on August 22, 2017 Created by the makers of The Wire and boasting a fine ensemble cast, The Deuce chronicles the rise of the porn industry that began in New York City in 1971-72, driven by a politically motivated effort to “clean up” Times Square by driving pimps and prostitutes off the street and forcing them indoors – and the gradual legalization of porn. Over the course of eight episodes, this gritty series takes an up-close look at a colourful world of sex, crime, high times and sudden violence, as the porn business begins its climb to legitimacy, cultural permanence – and billion-dollar profitability. Seizing the chance to cash in on the flourishing porn business (and sometimes being consumed by it) are a vivid assortment of characters, including: Vincent Martino (James Franco), a bartender with vision and connections; Frankie Martino (Franco again), Vincent’s identical twin and a dangerously freewheeling counterpart to his entrepreneurial brother; and Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a self-made, on-the-street sex worker eying a new career in porn filmmaking. Joining them are pimps C.C. and Larry Brown; young prostitutes Darlene and Lori; midtown cop Chris Alston; mob capo Rudy Pipilo; disillusioned college student Abby Parker and more. cast James Franco as Frankie Martino / Vincent Martino Maggie Gyllenhaal as Eileen ‘Candy’ Merrell Gary Carr as None Margarita Levieva as Abigail ‘Abby’ Parker Lawrence Gilliard Jr as Chris Alston Dominique Fishback as Darlene Emily Meade as Lori Gbenga Akinnagbe as Larry Brown Emmanuel Akoto as Actor Chris Bauer as Bobby Dwyer Chris Coy as Paul Hendrickson John Druzba as Business Man Kayla Foster as Barbara Anwan Glover as Leon Don Harvey as Danny Flanagan Method Man as Rodney Natalie Paul as Sandra Washington Michael Rispoli as Rudy Pipilo Daniel Sauli as Tommy Longo Kim Director as Shay Olivia Luccardi as Melissa crew details Creators: George Pelecanos, David Simon Executive Producers: James Franco, Nina Kostroff-Noble, George Pelecanos, Richard Price, David Simon, Michelle MacLaren Producers: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Marc Henry Johnson, Dara Schnapper production details Country: USA Network: HBO – Blown Deadline Duration: 60 minutes Aired From: 10 September 2017 THE EPISODES SEASON ONE 10 September 2017 – 1.
