The third and final season of The Deuce will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Thursday January 2nd at 10pm, it has been announced.
Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, The Deuce follows the rise of the porn culture in New York from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s. The drama series stars James Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Carr, Margarita Levieva, Emily Meade, Lawrence Gilliard, Jr., Chris Bauer, Michael Rispoli, Chris Coy, David Krumholtz, Daniel Sauli, Olivia Luccardi and Sepideh Moafi.
The show’s third and final season brings us into the world of 1985, just as VHS overtakes film as the primary medium for porn production and distribution. The lure of the California sunshine, the city’s aggressive takeover of commercial sex properties in Times Square and the devastating impact of the AIDS epidemic mark the end of an era. With the party of the 1970s winding down, 42nd Street has deteriorated into a hive of uncontrolled violent crime and seedy video stores, making urban renewal seem more unlikely than ever before
