Tonight Showcase will premiere Season 2 of How to Make It In America, HBO’s comedy focusing on the urban adventures of Ben (Bryan Greenberg) an aspiring designer who has seen previous passion projects derailed by fate and fortune, and Cam (Victor Rasuk), Ben’s best friend, a free spirit and would-be mogul.
Season Two guest stars fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi, musician Pharrell Williams, The Sopranos‘ Michael Imperiale, Martha Plimpton and Gina Gershon.
This season, as they continue to hustle to get their CRISP line of T-shirts and hoodies off the ground following a potentially lucrative trip to Japan, Ben and Cam scour the downtown NYC scene for new business connections, following any lead they can get to get noticed in the ultra-competitive fashion industry.
Among those who rub shoulders with Ben and Cam in and around the city are Ben’s ex-girlfriend Rachel (Lake Bell), an interior decorator now searching for meaning after a globe-spanning trip to Africa and Europe; Domingo (Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi), a well-connected street pal with his own “entrepreneurial” business; David “Kapo” Kaplan (Eddie Kaye Thomas), a hedge-fund manager and high-school acquaintance; and Cam’s cousin Rene (Luis Guzmán), an ex-con who is eying his own get-rich scheme by marketing his Rasta Monsta energy drink.
Who will you become to get what you want? That’s the question facing Ben and Cam this season, as the 20-something friends set their sights on the fashion-world big time, continuing to pound the pavement in New York to make their dreams come true.
7:30pm Wednesdays on Showcase.
