Prepare to travel back in time to the 1970s when New York City was a place where "community standards" were a distant memory -- a place where crime, sex, and drugs ran rampant and everybody was hustling for money.

Check out a new teaser trailer for "The Deuce," HBO's newest original series from David Simon, the creator of "The Wire," and starring James Franco, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and ... James Franco!

Franco plays dual roles as twin brothers Vincent and Frankie Martino, a couple of mob-connected goons, one of whom is trying to "run a legitimate business" as the owner of a local bar in Time Square. Of course, in the 70s, Time Square was a much different place as it was the epicenter of prostitution, porn theaters, and strip clubs.

Meanwhile, Gyllenhaal plays Candy, a hardscrabble sex worker who winds up getting into New York's burgeoning adult film industry.

The cast also includes David Krumholtz, Zoe Kazan, Chris Bauer, Michael Rispoli, Emily Meade, Margarita Levieva, Jamie Neumann, and more.

Co-created by crime novelist George Pelecanos (who also worked with Simon on "The Wire" and "Treme"), "The Deuce" will be premiering Sunday, September 10th on HBO.

synopsis:
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.
