HBO’s new series The Deuce takes an immersive look at the evolution of the sex work industry in 1970s Manhattan.

Sit down with writing duo George Pelecanos and David Simon as they discuss their first time working as co-creators, the importance of research for this period piece, and how setting influences theme and character.
