Thomas Jane in Hung hits Asia this January




PHILIPPINES, 26 NOVEMBER 2009 – HBO premieres a brand new offbeat comedy series, HUNG, about a former high school sports legend turned middle-aged high school basketball coach who is a divorced dad in dire straits struggling to make ends meet and regain control of his life. Because desperate times call for desperate measures, the well-endowed Ray decides to exploit his best asset in a last-ditch attempt to change his fortunes.





The ten-episode first season of this HBO Original Series premieres on 2 January at 10pm with two back-to-back episodes airing daily on HBO SIGNATURE as well as on HBO and in high definition on HBO HD from 4 January 2010 at 10pm.

The series stars Thomas Jane (“The Punisher,” HBO’s “*61”) as Ray Drecker; Jane Adams (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”) as Ray’s business partner, Tanya Skagle; Anne Heche (“Men in Trees”) as Ray’s ex-wife, Jessica Haxon; Eddie Jemison (“Ocean’s Thirteen”) as Jessica’s successful husband Ronnie; Sianoa Smit-McPhee (“As the Bell Rings”) as Ray’s daughter Darby; and Charlie Saxton (“The Lovely Bones”) as Ray’s son Damon.



Years ago, as a student at Detroit’s West Lakefield High School, Ray Drecker (Thomas Jane) was athletic, popular and destined for success. Today, as a West Lakefield teacher and coach of the varsity basketball team (which is on an unprecedented losing streak), he’s underpaid, uninsured and embittered that his wife of 20 years (Anne Heche) left him for her dermatologist, Ronnie Haxon (Eddie Jemison). After fire damages the rundown lakeside home he inherited from his parents, Ray’s fortunes reach an all-time low when his twin children Darby (Sianoa Smit-McPhee) and Damon (Charlie Saxton), who had been living with him, move in with their mom and her smug new husband.

Lonely, run down and at wit’s end, Ray attends a self-help class, where the mantra is to identify a personal “winning tool” to market for financial success. After a not-so-fulfilling encounter with fellow attendee Tanya Skagle (Jane Adams), a would-be poet, Ray has a “eureka” moment. With the help of Tanya, the well-endowed Ray sets out to exploit his greatest asset in hopes of changing his fortunes.



HUNG was created by Dmitry Lipkin and Colette Burson; executive producers, Colette Burson, Dmitry Lipkin, Alexander Payne, Michael Rosenberg, John Morayniss and Noreen Halpern; co-executive producers, Scott Stephens and Emily Kapnek.
Catch the first season of the all new HBO comedy series HUNG when it premieres on 2 January 2010 on HBO SIGNATURE with two new episodes airing daily from 2 to 6 January at 10pm every night.



Subscribers can also catch the entire first season of HUNG from Monday, 4 January 2010 with two back-to-back episodes every Monday at 10pm on HBO and in high definition on HBO HD. For more play times, log on to www.hboasia.com.
