Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Franco and the rest of the cast and crew of HBO’s The Deuce descended on the SVA Theatre last week for the show’s premiere. Created by The Wire's David Simon and George Pelecanos, the series explores the burgeoning adult film industry in gritty 1970s New York.  

The Deuce airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. If you missed the first episode last week, you can stream it now on HBO GO and HBO NOW. In the meantime, scroll through pictures from the festivities below.
