First Look: James Franco's HBO Porn Drama 'The Deuce'

James Franco signed on for HBO's 70's set porn drama, The Deuce, back in the summer of 2015 and now Entertainment Weekly has its first look at the series! (We're still waiting on that trailer!)

From Variety:

“The Deuce,” set in the Times Square demimonde of the 1970s and 1980s, explores the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York, looking into the rough-and-tumble world of midtown Manhattan until the rise of HIV, the violence of the cocaine epidemic and the renewed real estate market all ended the bawdy turbulence. The project is partly inspired by the career of twin brothers who were players in the Times Square world and became fronts for mob control of the volatile and lucrative sex industry.

Franco plays twins Frankie and Vincent in the series from The Wire and Treme creators David Simon and George Pelecanos. Maggie Gyllenhaal also stars as an entrepreneurial prostitute named Candy.
