Set in the late 1980s, Hap and Leonard – based on the works of Joe R. Lansdale – is a darkly comic swamp noir story of two best friends, one femme fatale, a crew of washed-up revolutionaries, a pair of murderous psycho-killers, some lost loot, and the fuzz.

The series follows Hap Collins (James Purefoy), an East Texas white boy with a weakness for Southern women, and Leonard Pine (Michael K. Williams), a gay, black Vietnam vet with a hot temper – the best friends in that equation.

Hap and Leonard premieres on SundanceTV on Wednesday, March 2nd (10/9C). For more, follow the jump.
