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 (James Purefoy), an East Texas white boy with a weakness for Southern women, and Leonard Pine (Michael Kenneth Williams), a gay, black Vietnam vet with a hot temper.
When Hap's seductive ex-wife Trudy Fawst (Christina 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.
James Purefoy (Rome, The Following
) is "Hap," Michael K. Williams (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire
) is "William," Jimmi Simpson (Westworld, House of Cards
) is "Soldier," and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men, Firefly
) is "Trudy"...and that's just some of the cast for Sundance TV's show from this past spring, Hap and Leonard
. Now with a second season in the works, Season 1
is coming home with all six episodes.
