HBO has confirmed the premiere for its next original drama series titled “The Deuce,” which will begin its eight-episode season on Sunday, September 10 (9–10 p.m. ET/PT).

Created by David Simon (“The Wire” creator, producer) and George Pelecanos (“The Wire” producer), “The Deuce” follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world at the pioneering moments of what would become the billion-dollar American sex industry.

George Pelecanos, David Simon, James Franco and Nina K. Noble executive produce.

The series’ ensemble cast includes James Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and some of Simon’s “The Wire” cast members like Lawrence Gillard Jr. and Gbenga Akinnagbe, as well as Tarik Trotter, Gary Carr, Natalie Paul, Dominique Fishback, Pernell Walker and more.
