Set in the late 1980s, "Hap and Leonard" 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. Based on the novels by Joe R. Lansdale, the six-hour series event follows Hap Collins (James Purefoy), an East Texas white boy with a weakness for Southern women, and Leonard Pine (Michael Kenneth Williams), a gay, black Vietnam vet with a hot temper. When Hap's seductive ex-wife Trudy (Christina Hendricks) resurfaces with a deal they can't refuse, a simple get-rich-quick scheme snowballs into bloody mayhem. Chock full of eccentric characters, "Hap and Leonard" provides a country twist on the classic mystery thriller.
Based on the book series by Joe R.

The story begins with a skeleton, Trudy's missing ashes, a literal pissing match with a neighborhood drug dealer, and a piece of MeMaw's famous pie.
