Hung ~ Season 1Produced by Alexander Payne (Sideways), who
directed the pilot, Hung reinvents the
hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold archetype for the postfeminist era.
High school basketball coach Ray Drecker (a first-rate Thomas Jane)
lives in a Detroit devastated by the decline of the auto industry.
After an electrical fire destroys his home, he loses custody of his
kids to ex-wife Jessica (Anne Heche); joins forces with
poet-turned-pimp Tanya (Jane Adams), with whom he once had a fling;
and becomes a male escort. Though Drecker's life looks nothing like
the one depicted in Boogie Nights, the anatomical anomaly
he shares with porn star Dirk Diggler makes him well suited for his
new line of work. To ensure that things look legit, Tanya markets
Ray as a "happiness consultant." While she attempts to locate
clients, he sleeps in a tent until he can inhabit his house again,
tries to maintain a relationship with mopey twins Damon (Charlie
Saxton) and Darby (Sianoa Smit-McPhee), and wages a stealth war
against his image-obsessed neighbor, Howard (Loren Lester). Once
Tanya reconnects with Lenore (Rebecca Kreskoff), a forceful fashion
consultant, Ray hooks up with a controlling executive (Dirty
Sexy Money's Natalie Zea) and a married woman who could use
some TLC (Margo Martindale).
As the poignantly funny, if tonally erratic first season
unfolds, Tanya meets a new man (Humpday's Joshua Leonard)
and tangles with her pompous mother (Rhea Perlman); Jessica finds
out her wealthy dermatologist husband, Ronnie (Eddie Jemison),
isn't as wealthy as she thought; and Lenore tries to steal Ray away
from Tanya. The premise may sound salacious, but Hung
concerns itself more with economic imperatives and unconventional
friendships than with cheap thrills. Created by Colette Burson and
Dmitry Lipkin, the married team behind The Riches,
Hung ends with the intimation of layoffs and affairs, rich
dilemmas to fuel the second season. --Kathleen C.
