David Duchovny stars in this new Showtime series. He stars as Hank Moody, a novelist who is trying to recapture his muse while at the same time dealing with his 13-year-old daughter and her mother, whom he still cares for. While they were never married, she is now looking for a relationship with a man who will commit to marriage. She tells him he has a lot of talent but is "just flushing it down the toilet." She has faith he can return to be the productive writer he once was, but he is not so sure.
In the first episode Hank refers to himself as a one-hit wonder, but still thinks he will be able to write another book, if only he could get himself out of the slump in which he currently wallows. He is obsessed with sex, drugs, and booze, and this behavior lands him in some very compromising situations. Whether he's involved with a married woman or an under aged girl, this man loves sex, at almost any price. And he loves to drink. But will these demons be what ultimately releases him from this dark state or will they drag him down even further? Perhaps they will end up being the subject of his next work. We'll have to wait to see what happens during the season.
