Will Hung Be Hanged?

HBO has ordered 10 episodes of the comedy series Hung, which will air in June. Thomas Jane — who played the Punisher in the previous bad movie based on the Marvel Comics character — stars as a high school basketball coach in suburban Michigan.

So, what’s up with the title?

It seems our hero does more than shoot hoops in the gym. He is exceedingly gifted in another area and uses that asset to his advantage.

“It has its sexual moments, but the show is very much about what’s happening in the country, how people are trying to survive using what God had given them,” creator Dmitry Lipkin told The Hollywood Reporter.

In addition to Jane, series regulars are Jane Adams, Sianoa Smit-McPhee and Charlie Saxton.
