[via press release from HBO]

HBO COMEDY SERIES HUNG, STARRING THOMAS JANE, JANE ADAMS AND ANNE HECHE, RETURNS FOR ITS TEN-EPISODE THIRD SEASON OCT. 2

Having skirted the watchful eyes of family and friends, Ray and Tanya are taking their business to the next level. But can they continue to fly under the radar of the law after setting up a new, very public front for their gigolo enterprise?

The Emmy(R)- and Golden Globe-nominated comedy series HUNG kicks off its ten-episode third season SUNDAY, OCT. 2 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Created by Colette Burson and Dmitry Lipkin, the show uses dark humor to tell the story of a man fighting to survive personal setbacks that have been compounded by a troubled economy.

Set in the (still) recession-plagued suburbs of Detroit, HUNG stars Thomas Jane as Ray Drecker, a former high school legend turned middle-aged hooker, who now has to contend with competition from a new, younger rival; Jane Adams as Ray's business partner, Tanya Skagle; Anne Heche as Ray's ex-wife, Jessica Haxon, now separated from her dermatologist husband and headed back into the workforce after 20 years as a housewife; Charlie Saxton as Ray's son Damon; Sianoa Smit-McPhee as Ray's daughter Darby; Rebecca Creskoff as Ray and Tanya's former partner Lenore, now seeking revenge on them for stealing her "lifestyle idea"; Gregg Henry as Mike, Ray's friend and fellow teacher; Lennie James as Charlie, Tanya's fellow pimp, advisor and occasional paramour; and Stephen Amell as Jason, the new male hooker and client of Lenore's.

Recurring guest stars on the third season include Kaitlin Doubleday as Logan, a former student of Ray's; Ana Ortiz, as Lydia, a new client of Ray's who likes to dress up like a cop; and Matt Walsh as Dr. Matt Kopylov, who hires Jessica to work in his office and is the husband of her estranged husband Ronnie's mistress.
