THE DEUCE Series Premiere Review

Though we couldn’t jump on it right away this site did want to take advantage of the Advanced Screening of the premiere of THE DEUCE. We couldn’t wait until 09.10.17 to begin David Simon’s next examination of the human condition. Our anticipation is high for this one as we go back to New York City, NY in the year 1971. The city is not at its best and there is a story to tell. Here is our take on THE DEUCE: “Pilot.” The story opens up as we focus in on a little corner bar down any little back street of the city and peek through its window to find Vincent Martino (James Franco) counting the night’s till. And as he exits his...

THE DEUCE Is Building A Cast

The following is the culmination of a few reports over the past month or so regarding casting of the latest from David Simon, THE DEUCE.

David Simon’s THE DEUCE Adds More Writers to the NYC Porn Series

THE DEUCE is still being written and that is okay because we expect a David Simon piece to be well written and the additions to that staff might just prove helpful. Not only is Simon himself writing, but from the start George Pelecanos and Richard Price have been in place in that capacity as well. Now being added as scribes are two novelists and they are Megan Abbott and Lisa Lutz. Here is a quick look at why they will prove valuable to the series going forward. Megan Abbott (pictured at right)  is an award-winning author of a number of novels and magazine pieces. But what we noted might really be an asset is the fact that she wrote works...
