Currently, Neumann plays "Ashley" alongside James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal in HBO’s critically-acclaimed series, “The Deuce.” Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon (“The Wire”) the show chronicles the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York City from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s.

Next year, Neumann can be seen in the highly anticipated Hulu drama series, “The Looming Tower” alongside Jeff Daniels and Peter Sarsgaard. Based on Lawrence Wright’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 9/11 exposé by the same name, the show will trace the rising threat of Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, taking a controversial look at how the rivalry between the CIA and FBI may have inadvertently set the stage for the tragedy of 9/11 and the war in Iraq.
