A new trailer for HBO’s upcoming porn industry drama The Deuce is here, and at last, we finally get to see two Francos occupying one screen. That’s because James Franco will play both lead roles on the show: Frankie and Vinny Martino, who rise to Times Square sex industry notoriety as they become fronts for mob ownership of porn and prostitution in the 80s.
As we’ve said before, it’s quite disheartening to know that a show about AIDS-era New York City is centering around a cis white man, but that said, it looks like it’s going to be a hell of a program. It’s the latest project from David Simon, who previously created The Wire, and it co-stars Maggie Gyllenhaal as a curly blonde prostitute-turned-porn-power-player named Candy.
The new show is out September 10, after we’ll all be viscerally shook by the ultimate end of Game of Thrones and hungry for a new HBO drama to consume our free time.
Take a look at the new trailer below:
