With police pushing their business off the streets, C.C. (Gary Carr), Larry (Gbenga Akinnagbe), Rodney (Cliff Smith/Method Man) and other pimps worry about becoming obsolete. Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) eyes a different job on Harvey's (David Krumholtz) set as Lori (Emily Meade) struggles with the demands of porn acting. At her wit's end, Ashley (Jamie Neumann) hangs out with Frankie (James Franco) and, later, washes up on Abby's (Margarita Levieva) door. Bobby (Chris Bauer) is smitten with an employee while dealing with shakedowns, flare-ups and a medical emergency. Frankie is tasked by Rudy (Michael Rispoli) to turn a peep-show concept into reality. Alston (Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.) finds himself singled out by the 14th Precinct's new captain, McDonagh (Ed Moran). Abby asks Vincent to be her escort at her family's lavish party.

DEUCE, THE (HBO)
Returns Sunday, September 9
BROADCAST HISTORY:
9/10/17 - ???
STATUS:
returning this fall (yet to premiere)
TIME SLOT:
sundays from 9:00 PM-10:00 PM EST
CURRENT SEASON:
2 (9 episodes)
DESCRIPTION:
(from HBO's press release, July 2018) Chronicling the rise of pornography and the multibillion-dollar industry's transformation of American culture, the critically acclaimed drama series THE DEUCE, created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, returns for its nine-episode second season SUNDAY, SEPT. 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Resuming five years after the culmination of the first season, THE DEUCE returns to the world of 1977, capturing the Times Square area of midtown New York at its most garish and volatile. The series is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals. Amid a city that is as culturally dynamic as it is dystopic, the show finds its protagonists living at the apex of the Golden Age of Porn, when the dream of a mainstream X-rated film business is a suddenly a credible reality, and the culture of pornography and its blatant commodification of sex is finding increasing traction among more and more Americans. Disco and punk are in full swing, and police corruption and political tolerance for New York's midtown demimonde is at its height. And the Mafia, the early backer of pornography at the moment when courts declared for its legality, is now seemingly poised to reap great profits. A comparable - and, in some ways, more professional - porn industry is rising on the West Coast as well. But for now, New York is holding its own in a city flush with movies, music and art, as the drug-fueled party rages around the clock.
