Plot Synopsis

Based on Joe Lansdale's Southern noir book series, HAP AND LEONARD is an event series about an unlikely pair of best friends and martial arts experts who struggle through misadventure to stay on the right side of the law in 1980s East Texas. Hap Collins is a white working class laborer who spent time in federal prison as a young man for refusing to be drafted into the military and serve in the Vietnam War. Now In his late thirties, he is just barely making ends meet picking roses on an East Texas plantation but he has a weakness for Southern women. His colleague and lifelong best friend is Leonard Pine, a six-foot five, gay, black Vietnam vet with a hot temper. Leonard was raised by his uncle who shunned him after learning he was gay leaving Hap as his only support in the not so progressive rural South. After Hap and Leonard lose their jobs, Hap's seductive ex-wife Trudy resurfaces with a deal they can't refuse: a simple get-rich-quick scheme that snowballs into bloody mayhem, providing a country twist on the classic mystery thriller. Meanwhile, a menacing pair descends upon the duo's hometown.

HAP AND LEONARD: MUCHO MOJO, the second season of this series, premieres March 2017. In Season 2, Hap and Leonard find themselves in mucho-trouble as they unravel a murder mystery with more twists and turns than an East Texas highway. The story begins with a skeleton; Trudy's missing ashes; a pissing match with a neighborhood drug dealer, and a piece of MeMaw's fresh baked pie. When Leonard is arrested for a murder he didn't commit, Hap and attorney Florida Grange must work to clear his name. The only things standing in their way are Hap's unquenchable thirst for Florida; a serial killer; bad mojo; and themselves.
