From the creator of one of TV's finest shows, The Wire comes The Deuce. Set in 1970's New York around the pimps, prostitution and porn scene of Times Square. It's staring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Method Man and James Franco and a bunch of other actors from The Wire including..

 

Method Man who played Cheese in The Wire.. Can't wait to see him this. Also the actor that plays Chris Partlow in The Wire, Gbenga Akinnagbe returns as well as Michael Kostroff who played The Barksdale Organization's lawyer. 

 

It also has Michael Rispoli (Jackie Aprille, The Sopranos).

 

Anyway, that doesn't matter if you don't know those actors, it's just a nice nugget of info for those who watched The Wire. Looking forward to this show. I love period pieces and 70's New York was grimey and full of seedy crime to a backdrop of wonderful music. 

 

Knowing David Simon it will have very multi-dimensional characters, hopefully a rich and layered story like The Wire with big doses of social commentary.

 

Premise..

 

 

In New York, the number of those with HIV is rising and the violence of the drug epidemic is worsening. Twin brothers, Vincent and Frankie Martino, become fronts for the Mob while operating out of Times Square, which is also the home of "Candy", a sex worker who turns to the now legal emerging porn industry.

Yeah I kind of feel ashamed I haven't watched his other HBO shows but this one speaks to me in so many ways. I love crime shows, New York and period pieces. Hopefully this will work out. We know there will be a huge human element to this. We know David Simon is anti "war on drugs" and maybe we'll see case for that or something a little deeper socially with a the backdrop of 70's New York.
