HBO Remaking French Porn Comedy 'Hard'

Canal Plus

HBO is getting into the pornography business with its latest acquisition. The network has picked up the French comedy "Hard," Variety reports, which tells the story of a widow who finds herself stuck running her late husband's failing pornography business. The widow will find herself straddling a double life, trying to lead a normal existence on one side while working as a porn company executive on the other.

The new series is being adapted by Jenny Bicks, who is a former writer and producer for HBO's "Sex and the City" and Showtime's "The Big C," where she was the showrunner. That certainly gives her the pedigree to keep this woman strong and believable while immersed in such a wildly unpredictable world.

Check out more details over at Variety.
