After the success of racy shows like Game of Thrones, Girls and Sex and the City, it seemed like it was only a matter of time before HBO took on a porn-themed series. We’re just surprised that it’s actually taken this long for it to happen.

Variety reports the channel is now working on a remake of the French comedy Hard, which starred French actress Natacha Lindinger and premiered in 2008. The American version is described as a dark comedy that “revolves around a Brentwood housewife who inherits her husband’s failing porn company. She’s challenged to manage a business and her dueling lives, which she shares with her coffee-clatch friends.”

HBO’s Hard is being produced by the former Sex and the City writer and producer Jenny Bicks, who’s also known for her work on The Big C and Men in Trees. Bicks will be working along with producer Stephen McPherson, who optioned the rights to the series. So far, there’s no word on potential casting.

It is odd that this article does not mention "Hung," which was closer to depicting the porn industry than any of the cited shows and was more recent than "Sex."
