HBO to Get "Hung" on June 28
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- HBO will get "Hung" on Sunday nights beginning June 28.

The newcomer will air at 10:00/9:00c following the second season of "True Blood" at 9:00/8:00c.

Here's the network's official description of the series: "Years ago in high school, Ray Drecker (Thomas Jane) was athletic, popular and destined for success. Now, as a high-school teacher and basketball coach, he's underpaid, uninsured, and embittered that his wife of 20 years (Anne Heche) has left him for her dermatologist. After a fire damages the rundown Detroit home he inherited from his parents, Ray's fortunes reach an all-time low when his twin children, who had been living with him, move in with their mom and her clean-freak hubby. Lonely, run-down and at wit's end, Ray attends a local self-help class whose mantra is to identify a personal "winning tool" to market for financial success. After a not-so-fulfilling encounter with a fellow attendee - an ex-flame and would-be poet named Tanya (Jane Adams) - Ray has a "eureka" moment. With the help of Tanya, Ray resolves to take advantage of his greatest asset, in hopes of changing his fortunes in a big way."

Charlie Saxton and Eddie Jemison also star in the hour, which comes from co-creators Dmitry Lipkin and Colette Burson. Alexander Payne helmed in the pilot.
