TV Hung (HBO 2009-2010, Thomas Jane, Jane Adams) Published 2 years ago on April 21, 2017 In off beat comedy drama series Hung we enter into the world of Detroit based serial loser Ray Drecker, a middle aged basketball coach whose life is on a downward spiral. His wife has left him for someone wealthier, his house has been badly burnt in a fire, his job is in the balance as his team are on a losing streak and his teenage kids would rather live with mum than share a tent with him (even if it does have its own microwave oven). Determined to give it one last shot at turning his life around Ray goes on a get rich quick seminar, after hooking with an old flame, Tanya, Ray realises that he has one thing going for him. He is very well endowed! Tanya convinces him to set up in business as a gigalo aka Happiness Consultant. The kind of show that only pay tv can seemingly take on, Hung is a kind of male version of Secret Diary of a Call Girl and is out of the same mould as Californication. Very funny (and quite sad too) and with a couple of brilliant performances from Thomas Jane and Jane Adams. Ray actually isn’t that likeable but you can’t help empathise with him. The show is full of strong language and graphic sex scenes but its definitely a class act. production details USA / HBO – Tennessee Wolf Pack – E1 Entertainment / 1×60 minute episode 29×30 minute episodes / Broadcast 28 June 2009 – 4 December 2011 Creators: Colette Burson, Dmitry Lipkin / Music: Craig Wedren / Theme Music: The Black Keys / Executive Producers: Alexander Payne, Colette Burson, Dimitry Lipkin, Michael Rosenberg, Noreen Halpern, John Morayniss, Emily Kapnek, Scott Stephens cast THOMAS JANE as Ray Drecker JANE ADAMS as Tanya Skagle EDDIE JEMISON as Ronnie Haxon CHARLIE SAXTON as Damon Drecker SIANOA SMIT-McPHEE as Darby Drecker ANNE HECHE as Jessica Haxon LOREN LESTER as Howard Koontz REBECCA CRESKOFF as Lenore STEVE HYTNER as Floyd Gerber GREGG HENRY as Mike MARYLOUISE BURKE as Jessica’s Mother ALANNA UBACH as Yael Koontz LENNIE JAMES as Charlie Anne HecheComedy DramaHane AdamsHBOThomas JaneTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes10 hours ago Your Worst Nightmare: Behind the Barn (S5EP8 ID Sat 23 Feb 2019) Behind the Barn: When 20-year-old college student Kristy Ray is kidnapped from her home in rural Tippah County, Miss., in...
