Hacks Season 1 Cast: In HBO Max’s latest hit series about Las Vegas stand-up diva Deborah Vance, Jean Smart leads a stellar ensemble of familiar faces and talented newcomers.
Here’s who’s in the first season of Hacks, and where you might recognise them. HBO Max’s newest dark comedy hit, starring Emmy-winner Jean Smart and about Las Vegas diva and stand-up comedy legend Deborah Vance, premiered on May 13, 2021, to critical acclaim.
The show’s 10-episode run will air two half-hour episodes every week until June 10th, according to writer/creator Paul W. Brown. Jean Smart gets her long-awaited moment in the spotlight as the host of her own show as Deborah Vance, a Las Vegas comedy queen and entrepreneur.
When Marty (Christopher McDonald), the sleazy owner of the casino where Deborah performs, wants her to start sharing her dates with younger acts like Pentatonix, Deborah finds herself in yet another struggle to save her comedy empire.
