The Deuce TV Series (2017)
The Deuce tells the story of the legalization and ensuing rise of the porn industry in New York beginning in the 1970s. Themes explored include the violence of the drug epidemic and the resulting real estate booms and busts that coincided with the change. The show's title is derived from the nickname for 42nd Street between Seventh Avenue and Eighth Avenue
This is written by two of the guys who did The Wire. It's very much like the wire in many ways; a slow burner in which so little yet so much happens, all played out by incredibly proficient and interesting actors/characters, with interesting and well executed dialogue to the backdrop of a gripping storyline.
Anybody who enjoys quality TV, and especially The Wire, should get on the case.
