Ever wonder what True Detective might look like if it took itself less seriously? Or maybe if Dukes of Hazzard had added a bit of intrigue to their plotlines? Well, the new SundanceTV series Hap and Leonard just might be your solution.
The show will follow the exploits of the two eponymous best friends: the white working-class Hap Collins (James Purefoy) with a love for the women of the South, and the black gay veteran Leonard Pine (Michael Kenneth Williams), who carries some serious anger issues.
Set in Texas during the ’80s, Hap and Leonard embark on a scheme to make a fortune after agreeing to a deal with Hap’s ex-wife Trudy (Christina Hendricks). Of course, the plan leads to chaos, and a mystery involving both of these unlikely friends.
The six-episode series is adapted from a series of Joe Lansdale books — eight novels that were released between 1990 and 2011, a ninth due out in February, and two novellas released between 2011 and 2013. Lansdale’s stories were praised for how they combined dark and thrilling mysteries with sharp humor.
Hap and Leonard, created by director/writer Jim Mickle and writer Nick Damici, is set to debut in March on SundanceTV.
