Editors Alex Hall, Kate Sanford and Matthew Booras discuss their upcoming HBO series,

The Deuce

, with

Steve Hullfish

. Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon (

The Wire

,

Treme

) and starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal,

The Deuce

follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York's Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s.

"All of us had a great advantage starting

The Deuce

because we knew what kind of world and what type of approach David [Simon] tends to start with," Sanford explains. "In every project, there are going to be stylistic variations, but in terms of launching a series, we all had a similar starting point — which is basically tight, straightforward storytelling without being self-consciously stylized. Music is always used in a diegetic way, except for montages, which are scripted."

Hall adds, "The language of David's work has evolved to a degree from

The Wire

. From a production standpoint,

Treme

was somewhat more ambitious cinematically and we pushed it a little bit to make it more cinematic, more sensual and kinetic. On

The Deuce

, we all felt that because of the period and the ambitions of the show, it had the potential to be more cinematic than anything we had worked on previously with this group of producers and writers. But we knew that a lot of the old rules would still apply." To read the full interview,
