“Don’t say another word. I’m gone get you out of here.” 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. The “Boys Are Back” in the first trailer for Season 2 of the Sundance TV’s series based on the novels by Joe R. Lansdale. Down on his luck after losing his job, ’60s activist/ex-con Hap Collins (James Purefoy) can’t help but listen when his seductive ex-wife Trudy, for whom he still pines, resurfaces with promises of finding a sunken treasure in the Deep South. Joining the adventure is Hap’s unlikely buddy Leonard Pine(Michael Kenneth Williams), an openly gay black Vietnam War vet with a bad temper and little use for Trudy’s feminine wiles.
“You a trouble maker?” “Depends on who you ask.” Soon enough the 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.
“Bad things happen in that house.” “We gone find out who did this.” Created by Nick Damici and Jim Mickle in the series season 2 titled ‘Mucho Murder, Mayhem, & Mojo’ – themed, six-episode sophomore run Hap Collins (Purefoy) and Leonard Pine (Williams) find themselves caught in the middle of a murder mystery, one that begins with a skeleton. With a cast that also includes Christina Hendricks, Bill Sage, Jeff Pope, Neil Sandilands, Jimmi Simpson, and Pollyanna McIntosh, the Sundance TV airs Wednesdays at 10/9c.
