First Look At James Franco In HBO’s ’70s Porn Drama ‘The Deuce’

Viewers of HBO are eagerly anticipating the upcoming series from David Simon — creator of such critically acclaimed series as “The Wire” and “Treme” — which will revisit the seedy world of porn in the 1970s, and Wednesday brought the first trailer for the new project.

In “The Deuce”, James Franco stars in the dual roles of twin brothers Vincent and Frankie Martino, who operate out of Times Square as the legalization of pornography leads to an explosion in the industry.

The series, notes the official synopsis, will be “exploring the rough-and-tumble world at the pioneering moments of what would become the billion-dollar American sex industry.”

“The Deuce” makes its debut on Sept. 10.
