ABOUT THE SHOW:
“Hap and Leonard,” featuring James Purefoy (“Rome,” “The Following”), Michael Kenneth Williams (“The Wire,” “Boardwalk Empire”) and Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men”), will premiere Wednesday, March 2nd at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Set in the late 1980s, “Hap and Leonard” is a darkly comic swamp noir story of two best friends, one femme fatale, a crew of washed-up revolutionaries, a pair of murderous psycho-killers, some lost loot and the fuzz. Based on the novels by Joe Lansdale, the six-hour series event follows Hap Collins (Purefoy), an East Texas white boy with a weakness for Southern women, and Leonard Pine (Williams), a gay, black Vietnam vet with a hot temper. When Hap’s seductive ex-wife Trudy (Hendricks) resurfaces with a deal they can’t refuse, a simple get-rich-quick scheme snowballs into bloody mayhem. Chock full of eccentric characters, “Hap and Leonard” provides a country twist on the classic mystery thriller.
