Jenny Bicks Tapped to Adapt French Porn Comedy 'Hard' for HBO

Former 'Sex and the City' writer, Jenny Bicks, is going hard for her new project. Bicks has been tapped to adapt the French porn comedy 'Hard' for HBO.

The dark comedy centers around a Brentwood housewife-turned-widow who inherits her late husband's failing porn company. She will have to learn how to, um, straddle, a double life as she attempts to lead a normal life with her cushy friends, while also trying to keep the business afloat. So, you see, the title is actually an effective double entendre, and not just, uh, a dirty word. 

The original 'Hard' starred Natacha Lindinger and was pretty much, erm, tops when it debuted in 2008 and then had a follow-up season in 2011. 

Besides being a key scribe and producer on 'SATC,' Bicks also worked on the short-lived ABC series, 'Men in Trees,' and was recently the showrunner for Showtime's 'The Big C.' In addition to 'Hard,' she's also writing a pilot for NBC and is exec-producing a comedy pilot over at ABC called, 'Works with Jerks.'
