HBO Picks Up David Simon's Porn Drama Starring James Franco

Hey, we all know you love porn, so you'll love this. According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO has picked up The Deuce, a drama all about filmed sexy times for people's entertainment. This one deserves special attention not just because of its saucy material, but because it was created by David Simon, the man behind The Wire and Treme. It's like he said, "Okay, people won't watch amazing dramas about societal issues involving drugs, inner-city youths, disaster-ravaged slums, and New Orleans musicians keeping the city together? FINE! I'm making a show about boobs!"

The Deuce (named after 42nd Ave.) will be more than just about boobies and other body parts, though. It'll take a look at the rise of the industry in the 1970s during the onset of HIV and popularity of cocaine in New York's Times Square. And boobies.

James-FrancoAnd in case you're into star power, James Franco will play a pair of twin brothers who usher in the porn business, and Maggie Gyllenhaal will play a prostitute who works her way up the industry to be an entrepreneur.

PORN, GUYS! PORN! Will you watch?
