"In 'The Deuce', producer David Simon tries to do for the sex trade and 1970s evolution of pornography
what 'The Wire' did for drugs."
- Brian Lowry
A look at life in New York City during the 1970s and '80s when porn and prostitution were rampant in Manhattan.
Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon (The Wire) and starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal, The Deuce explores the rough-and-tumble world at the pioneering moments of what would become the billion-dollar American sex industry.
