HBO Renews ‘How to Make It in America’

Half-hour comedy gets second season

HBO said Wednesday it has picked up half-hour comedy series "How to Make It in America" for a second season. 

Production will again take place in New York.

The show, created by Ian Edelman, follows a pair of enterprising 20-somethings hustling their way through New York City, "determined to achieve the American Dream on their own terms," as HBO put it.

Edelman is an executive producer with Stephen Levinson, Rob Weiss, Julian Farino, Jada Miranda and Mark Wahlberg. Jane Raab produces.

The cast for the first season includes Bryan Greenberg, Victor Rasuk, Luis Guzman, Lake Bell, Scott “Kid” Mescudi, Eddie Kaye Thomas and Shannyn Sossamon.
