Hap and Leonard – A “Darkly Comic Swamp Noir”

Although the filming for Hap and Leonard began in 2016, the lore of this swampy folklore goes back much further than that. You could even say that the underlying storylines of Hap and Leonard go back even further than the show’s original setting, which is set in the late 1980’s. Viewers will detect a distinct late 1980s – early 1990s vibe to much of the show. But the show is much more than a period piece, or a show about the comic mishaps of the primary characters. Hap and Leonard is a unique viewing experience that can really only be appreciated when binge-watched. Start your love affair with Douglas County’s own Hap and Leonard today!
