What’s This TV Show About?
Streaming on the HBO Max subscription service, the Hacks TV show stars Jean Smart, Hannah Einbinder, and Carl Clemons-Hopkins with Kaitlin Olson, Christopher McDonald, Paul W. Downs, Mark Indelicato, Poppy Liu, Johnny Sibilly, Meg Stalter, and Rose Abdoo in recurring guest star roles. Created by Paul W. Downs, Lucia Aniello, and Jen Statsky, the comedy series explores a dark mentorship that forms between legendary Las Vegas comedian Deborah Vance (Smart) and Ava Daniels (Einbinder), a down-on-her-luck comedy writer. Deborah is in danger of losing her residency while entitled Ava is desperate for a job. Their mutual manager, Jimmy (Downs), sets them up on a meeting — much to their mutual chagrin.
Unless they decide to publicize viewership, it is difficult to predict whether HBO Max will cancel or renew Hacks for season two. Since HBO Max isn’t ad-supported, it can take a chance on series it believes in and stories that need telling, but sooner or later it comes down to production costs, versus viewership numbers. That being said, there’s been a lot of buzz about this series so I think it will be renewed. I’ll keep my ears open and an eye out for news, and will update this page with breaking developments.
