HBO are well know for portraying a decent amount of nudity in their shows, so it was a logical next step for them to cover a subject matter actually involving exposing skin. Their new offering The Deuce is about the ’70s and ’80s porn industry in New York City.
Focusing particularly in and around Times Square, James Franco stars as twin brothers Vincent and Frankie Martino who work as fronts for the mob. Maggie Gyllenhaal also acts alongside as a sex worker with an entrepreneurial spirit. Looking at HBO’s track record with these kind of period dramas, it definitely looks like a solid pick.
