Though AMC’s “Mad Men” has permanently bid audiences adieu, the show’s Emmy-nominated supporting actress Christina Hendricks fortunately has not.
SundanceTV released the first teaser trailer for Hendricks’ latest television project — a dark comedy series set in the ’80s. Based on fictional characters from novels by Joe R. Lansdale, the six-episode series follows the chaotic misadventures of two unlikely best friends: woman-crazed Texas native Hap Collins (James Purefoy) and hot-tempered Vietnam vet Leonard Pine (Michael Kenneth Williams). Hendricks plays Trudy, Hap’s seductive ex-wife.
Though brief and lacking in Hendricks footage, the teaser offers a fast-paced preview into the escapades of Hap and Leonard as they become deeply involved in a classic get-rich-quick scheme that goes awry.
The action-packed mystery thriller, created by director-writer Jim Mickle and writer Nick Damici, is set to premiere in March, 2016.
