TV show description:
A single-camera comedy, the Hacks TV show was created by Paul W. Downs, Lucia Aniello, and Jen Statsky.
The 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 at the Palmetto Casino while entitled Ava is in desperate need of work. Ava recently lost a TV deal because she made an offensive joke on Twitter.
Their mutual manager, Jimmy (Downs), sets them up on a meeting — much to their mutual chagrin — in hopes that Ava can help freshen up Deborah’s material.
This episode has not aired yet.
First aired: TBD
