CAST & CHARACTERS
Life has been a rocky road of ups and downs for famed novelist and NYC transplant Hank Moody since he relocated to Los Angeles. He suffered through a terrible case of writer's block, a crappy Hollywood adaptation of his prized tome, the death of the rock star whose memoirs he was writing, a single, tumultuous term as college professor, and a felony conviction. Now Hank just wants to kick back and enjoy life, but really, what are the chances? Hank owns all his vices drink, drugs and women with a refreshing sense of honesty and unapologetic candor. He's holding it together while falling apart, and he doesn't mind one bit.
