HBO to turn into French hardcore sex channel so gradually you won't even notice

Having been founded upon the bedrock of bare cheerleader breasts on 1st & 10, and each year since innovating creative and prestigious television what got boobs in it, HBO has officially reached the point where it’s explicitly making porn. Or rather, a show about porn, according to the channel’s need to contextualize gratuitous nudity in order to make its subscribers feel like they’re also getting some culture.  And so Variety reports that HBO will remake the “porn comedy” Hard, a series that hails from France—the country that practically invented sex as art, as borne out by all those tits you see in the Louvre.

The U.S. version of Hard will tell the tale of “a Brentwood housewife who inherits her husband’s failing porn company,” which she then runs while attempting to keep it secret from her gal pals. (It’s like Weeds, but with dicks.) Developing the show are Sex And The City’s Jenny Bicks, who knows all about writing for gossipy circles who mask hardcore sex with winking double-entendres, and America’s Funniest Home Videos producer Vin Di Bona, who knows all about genitals getting pounded.

You can see a trailer for the original version of Hard below; it’s full of nudity and graphic sex, but it’s also French and headed for HBO, and what workplace would be so fascistic as to deny you art?
