HBO does appreciate the talent of David Simon as an announcement has come out declaring that THE DEUCE has been picked up as a series. Of course, anyone who is an HBO fan knows that he was responsible for THE CORNER, THE WIRE, GENERATION KILL, TREME and SHOW ME A HERO. Now, he has a go to create for HBO again.

HBOWatch has been following his career for a while including his latest developments. We first caught notice of THE DEUCE in July of ’15; then we learned in September that it was one of two pilots being considered and then in November we reported that the greenlit pilot was in production. Well, it appears that HBO liked what it saw with the likes of James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal that a series was born.

The cool thing is that THE DEUCE would be a great companion piece in 2017 with VINYL as they both take place in the same time in the same place: VINYL looks at the New York music scene in the 1970’s & 80’s and THE DEUCE focuses on the porn industry and the seedy side of New York in the same time frame.

Written by Simon and longtime collaborator George Pelecanos and directed by Michelle MacLaren (Breaking Bad), the series follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world that existed there until the rise of HIV, the violence of the cocaine epidemic, and the renewed real estate market ended the bawdy turbulence.

We have detailed more of the plot in the links above so check it out and come back here to comment.We’ll get more details as they become available. We’d love to know if you are ready for another distinct and unique series from David Simon as much as we are.
