Thomas Jane Boards HBO’s Hung


The Hollywood Reporter says Thomas Jane has been tapped as the lead in HBO’s hourlong pilot “Hung.”

The dark comedy pilot, directed by Oscar winner Alexander Payne, centers on Ray (Jane), a well-endowed struggling middle-age high school basketball coach who figures out a way to use his best asset.

The pilot is executive produced by Dmitry Lipkin, Colette Burson, Payne and Blueprint Entertainment’s Michael Rosenberg, John Morayniss and Noreen Halpern.
