Trevor Hogg chats with Chris Dingess about his fateful encounter with the world of comic books...
“One of my brothers used to paint as a hobby, but that’s about it,” states Chris Dingess when discussing whether or not he comes from an artist family. “However, my parents took in and became guardians to this kid who went to high school with my brother; he had a talent for drawing and painting, and was great at copying comics and mimicking different artists. I was already into comics before he moved into the house, but he really kicked my interest up to the next level.

Who better to craft a plethora of double entendres then an alumna of Sex And The City? Writer and producer Jenny Bicks, also of The Big C and Men in Trees, will adapt the dark French comedy Hard, which might technically qualify as a single entendre. The HBO show will follow a "Brentwood housewife who inherits her husband’s failing porn company." Finally, a chance to use all those Satc one-liners that had to be cut for time.
