The 80s are alive and well in The Deuce season 3 trailer
The Deuce season 3 trailer is here, this time showing off the transformative era of the 1980s, from the birth of VHS to the slow death of city’s seedy epicenter, Times Square. You can check out the trailer in the player below!
The show chronicles the rise of the porn culture in New York from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world of the sex trade from the moment when both a liberalizing cultural revolution in American sexuality and new legal definitions of obscenity created a billion-dollar industry that is now an elemental component of the American cultural landscape. It follows a cast of barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police and nightlife denizens as they swirl through a world of sex, crime, high times and violence, and the porn business begins its climb from Mafia-backed massage parlors and film labs to legitimacy and cultural permanence.
The Deuce takes its name from the local slang for New York’s fabled 42nd Street and stars Oscar nominees James Franco (127 Hours) playing twin brothers alongside Maggie Gyllenhaal (Crazy Heart). The series was created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, who previously collaborated on the HBO series The Wire and Treme.
You can catch The Deuce when it returns for its final season September 9 on HBO.
