SUNDANCETV DEBUTS A NEW SEASON OF ORIGINAL SERIES "HAP AND LEONARD: MUCHO MOJO" WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15 AT 10:00PM ET/9PM CT

SundanceTV will debut an all new season of the network's highest rated original series, "Hap and Leonard: Mucho Mojo" on Wednesday, March 15 at 10:00 p.m. ET/9C, starring Michael Kenneth Williams ("The Night Of," "The Wire") and James Purefoy ("The Following," "Rome"). Inspired by the second book in the famed series by Joe R. Lansdale, "Hap and Leonard" follows two lifelong best friends -- Hap Collins (Purefoy) and Leonard Pine (Williams) - as they find themselves in mucho-trouble, caught in the middle of a murder mystery with more twists and turns than an East Texas highway. Set in the late 1980s, the story begins with a skeleton, Trudy's missing ashes, a literal pissing match with a neighborhood drug dealer, and a piece of MeMaw's famous pie.

In the premiere episode, "Mucho Mojo," written and directed by Jim Mickle, Hap and Leonard make an ominous discovery under Uncle Chester's floor.

Rounding out the cast in this six-episode anthology series are Brian Dennehy ("Death of a Salesman," "First Blood") Irma P. Hall ("A Family Thing," "Soul Food"), Dohn Norwood ("All the Way," "Hell on Wheels"), Tiffany Mack (Wicked Love, "iZombie") and Cranston Johnson ("Atlanta," Find a Way).

John Wirth ("Hell on Wheels," "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") is showrunner and executive producer for the second season, and Jim Mickle, Nick Damici, Jeremy Platt, Linda Moran, and Nick Shumaker return as executive producers, along with co-executive producers Joe R. Lansdale and Lowell Northrop.

DESCRIPTION:
(from SundanceTV's press release, September 2017) SundanceTV announced today that production is underway on season three of the network's critically-acclaimed original scripted anthology series "Hap and Leonard," in Atlanta, Georgia. The six-part drama, returning to SundanceTV in early 2018, takes inspiration from "The Two-Bear Mambo," the third installment of Joe R. Lansdale's popular book series. Joining James Purefoy (Hap) and Michael Kenneth Williams (Leonard) in the cast of "Hap and Leonard: The Two-Bear Mambo" is Oscar(R) award-winner and multiple Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) award-winning actor, Louis Gossett Jr. (An Officer and a Gentleman, Roots). He plays Bacon, a veterinarian-turned-cook at the local diner. Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) award nominee Corbin Bernsen ("L.A. Law," "Psych") will play Chief Cantuck, the foul-mouthed, morally ambiguous head of the Grovetown Police department. Andrew Dice Clay (Blue Jasmine, "Entourage") will star as Sonny Knox, the town's politically incorrect radio disc jockey. Additionally, Laura Allen ("American Horror Story: Cult," Mona Lisa Smile) plays Officer Reynolds, an East Texas cop who hides her bigotry behind her badge, and musician Curtis Harding plays blues legend, L.C. Soothe, and L.C.'s grandson, Bobby Joe, both of whom run afoul of the Klan. When Florida Grange goes missing in the Klan-infested town of Grovetown, Hap and Leonard set out to find her. As the mystery unfolds, Hap and Leonard find themselves at odds with a cast of characters so tough they could chew the bumper off a pickup truck, including a possibly corrupt sheriff, and the leader of the Caucasian Knights. Set once again in East Texas, against an impending storm of Biblical proportions, Hap and Leonard scramble to locate Florida before the Klan locates them. The boys learn that the good guys don't always win, and nobody beats Mother Nature.
