Alec Bojalad Kirsten Howard Sep 21, 2018

HBO has renewed David Simon's '70s porn drama The Deuce for a third and final season...

The Deuce isn't stopping at two.

HBO has officially ordered The Deuce season 3 and in the process also confirmed that the third season will be the show's final. Variety was the first to report the renewal.

The Deuce is just the latest in a long line of collaborations between David Simon and HBO. Former Baltimore Sun reporter Simon and his writing partner George Pelecanos were the driving forces behind Goat TV drama candidate The Wire. Simon and Pelecanos then went on to have a fruitful relationship with HBO, creating shows and limited series like Treme, Generation Kill, and Show Me A Hero. The Deuce has arguably been the most successful of these collaborations since The Wire.

Simon confirmed as much on Twitter, releasing a photo of the cast and crew with a message of thanks to HBO. “We’re always conjuring the last scene before we write the first,” Simon said. “So much the better when we work for people who allow us to consistently plan, arc and execute as intended.” Read the full statement below.

Emmys 2018: Show Business as Usual

Emmys 2018: Show Business as Usual
When the 2018 Emmy nominations were announced, it seemed like the comedy categories were far more interesting than the drama ones. And when it came time to guess the winners, I again assumed things would be wilder on the comedy side, while the drama awards would either re-coronate Game of Thrones or continue last year’s Handmaid’s Tale steamroller.

Game of Thrones did win Outstanding Drama Series last night, along with Peter Dinklage’s third Emmy for playing Tyrion Lannister, but for the most part my prognostication was exactly backwards.

by Murtada Elfadl

Cynthia Erivo who made waves this week at Tiff as one quarter of Widows has announced her next project. She will play iconic freedom fighter Harriet Tubman in Harriet. The film will follow Tubman on her escape from slavery and subsequent missions to free many slaves through the Underground Railroad in pre-Civil War America. More exciting is that Harriet will be directed by Kasi Lemmons of Eve’s Bayou (1997), a film we adore. This will be Lemmons' first film since Black Nativity (2013), in the past few years she’s been directing episodes of TV shows like Luke Cage and Shots Fired.

Joining Erivo in the cast are Leslie Odom Jr., Joe Alwyn, Clarke Peters (Detective Freamon in The Wire) and surprisingly country music singer Jennifer Nettles.
