Get into the gritty and decadent world of New York's Times Square in the 1970s, as the business of pleasure begins its climb to become a billion-dollar industry in this drama series from the creative team behind 'The Wire(R)' and 'Treme(R)'. Seizing the chance to cash in on the rapidly growing flesh industry (and sometimes being consumed by it) are a vivid assortment of characters, including: Vincent Martino (James Franco), a bartender with vision and connections and his freewheeling twin Frankie (Franco again); Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal), a self-made sex worker eyeing a new career in porn filmmaking; pimps C.C. (Gary Carr) and Larry Brown (Gbenga Akinnagbe); young prostitutes Darlene (Dominique Fishback) and Lori (Emily Meade); midtown cop Chris Alston (Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.); newspaper reporter Sandra Washington (Natalie Paul); mob capo Rudy Pipilo (Michael Rispoli); and disillusioned college student Abby Parker (Margarita Levieva).
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoPilot||Series Premiere. Twin brothers Vincent and Frankie Martino--one a double-shifting bartender with two kids and a wayward wife in Brooklyn, the second an insouciant gambler with piling mob debts--navigate their way through the rough-and-tumble world of 1971 Times Square. While Vincent plots ways to improve his situation and pay off his brother's debt, he crosses paths with other midtown denizens--including veteran hookers Candy and Ashley, young streetwalkers Darlene and Lori, and smooth-talking pimps C.C., Larry, and Rodney--as they ply their trades under the not-so-watchful eye of the NYPD. Meanwhile, when NYU student Abby is enlisted by friends to buy amphetamines on the street, she ends up in the Times Square precinct, an unlikely starting point for making a bold change to her privileged life.||1:24:12||$3.99||View in iTunes|
|2||HDClosed CaptioningVideoShow and Prove||With his marriage failing, Vincent moves into a seedy Times Square hotel and, fueled by his success drawing customers to a struggling Korean bar, contemplates a tempting offer from mob capo Rudy Pipilo. Meanwhile, Vincent and Frankie's brother-in-law Bobby, a Brooklyn construction foreman, eyes Vincent's new connections as a way to better his own lot. Reluctantly agreeing to pinch-hit for a friend in a pornographic short, Candy ends up being intrigued by the filmmaking process. C.C. shows Lori the advantages of having a pimp, while Larry is unsettled by Darlene's interest in literature--and by Sandra Washington, a reporter. Police officers Chris Alston and Danny Flanagan are joined by detectives Grossman and Haddix for a routine hooker round-up, as well as a raid of an adult porn shop whose peep shows cross the line.||58:55||$3.99||View in iTunes|
