Hung follows Ray Drecker (Thomas Jane), a high-school basketball coach in the suburbs of Detroit who is short on money. He is also the father of twin teenagers (Charlie Saxton and Sianoa Smit-McPhee), who move in with their remarried mother (Anne Heche) after a fire damages the childhood home Ray still owns. With no insurance to cover the damage from the fire, Ray is left without many options. With the help of a friend, Tanya (Jane Adams), Ray decides to use his above-average sized, 9-inch penis as an opportunity to make money. The episodes center on Ray's attempts to maintain a normal life while starting his business as a prostitute. Together, Tanya and Ray start their business, "Happiness Consultants".

The second season focuses on the complex dynamic between Ray and his two pimps, Tanya and Lenore (Rebecca Creskoff). Lenore, a life coach whom Tanya brought in to help them in the early stages of the business, began taking over Happiness Consultants late in the first season, as she believes she can take Ray into new business areas and views Tanya as an obstacle.

The third season has Tanya and Ray forced to compete for clients against Lenore and her younger gigolo Jason (Stephen Amell).


The show's pilot was directed by filmmaker Alexander Payne, who served as executive producer along with Burson, Lipkin, and Blueprint Entertainment. Burson and Lipkin's script was the first major purchase by the network's new entertainment president Sue Naegle in April 2008. This led the writers to immediately work on five more episodes for the series, a total of 10 episodes. On December 18, 2008, HBO announced picking up the series for its first season, which ran from June 28, 2009 to September 13, 2009. On July 30, 2009, HBO announced it had renewed the series for its second season, which ran from June 27, 2010.[2] In December 2011, HBO announced the cancellation of the series, ending it after three seasons.[3]

The theme song for Hung is "I'll Be Your Man" by The Black Keys[4] from their debut album The Big Come Up (2002). The track can also be found on the Rescue Me Original Television Soundtrack (2006) album.

Much of the show was filmed in the suburban Detroit cities of Royal Oak, Hamtramck, White Lake, Troy, Walled Lake, Clarkston, and West Bloomfield, Michigan.[5]

Cast and characters


  • Thomas Jane as Ray Drecker is a former star athlete turned high-school teacher/coach and single dad, who becomes a prostitute to provide a better life for himself and his children.
  • Jane Adams as Tanya Skagle is a former flame of Ray's who reunites with him later on. She takes on the role of his pimp after proving to have optimism to make money in the business.
  • Anne Heche as Jessica Haxon is Ray's ex-wife who is trying to build a relationship with her children as they drift away from her. She also finds herself drifting from her new husband, Ronnie.
  • Charlie Saxton as Damon Drecker is Ray and Jessica's son. He partakes in goth-like activities and is unsure as to his exact sexuality. He has issues with his mom, and he has an unhealthy fixation on his sister and is much more comfortable around his father.
  • Sianoa Smit-McPhee as Darby Drecker is Ray and Jessica's daughter, and Damon's twin. Darby has had issues with her boyfriend, and is very close with her brother, often a source of support.
  • Eddie Jemison as Ronnie Haxon (seasons 1–2, recurring season 3) is Jessica's new husband who is starting to become more about business than romance, causing both Jessica and himself to drift to outside romantic sources.
  • Rebecca Creskoff as Lenore Bernard (recurring season 1, seasons 2–3) is a life coach who is introduced to Ray by Tanya to bring in clients. Eventually, Lenore proves she can be a better pimp than Tanya, and the two are currently battling for his attention.
  • Gregg Henry as Mike Hunt (recurring season 1, seasons 2-3) is Ray's good friend and assistant coach. He is becoming suspicious of Ray's behavior, and is worried about being laid off as the school begins cutting costs.
