Hung Producer Delves Into Character Motivations

at . Comments

On Hung, Jane Adams' character of Tanya has agreed to serve as Ray's pimp.

Such an arrangement has troubled a few viewers, as they grapple with the moral decency of such a set-up. (This causes us to wonder why they tuned in to the show in the first place, of course, as it never made any secret about its storyline.)

In response to such criticism, Executive Producer Dmitry Lipkin told E! News:

"Tanya really thinks they're doing something new and groundbreaking. They're bringing happiness into the world. Maybe it's misguided, maybe it's not, but we embrace that idea. She's not seeing it just as a moneymaking venture. She's seeing it as a way to change her life and change other people's lives."

So there you have it. Is this a satifactory explanation of Hung's intentions?

Or do you not care, as long as the show is entertaining?
